BELDING — Faith Community Christian School (FCCS) in Belding welcomed a new administrator this month.
Kim Borgeson began working at FCCS on Aug. 6. She earned her bachelor’s degree in social studies and elementary education from Grand Valley State University and her master’s degree in general education from Cornerstone University.
“I am looking forward to being in contact with the families and helping to continue to build the community at the school,” Borgeson said.
Borgeson’s enthusiasm especially in providing Christian education to elementary children was one of the reasons she stood out, according to John Niewoonder, school board member and administrator search committee member.
“Her commitment to Jesus Christ and willingness to incorporate that commitment to all aspects of her life was clearly demonstrated throughout all aspects of the hiring process,” Niewoonder said. “In addition, it was clear that Kim was assertive and very interested in trying new ideas and ways to solve problems or overcome barriers.”
Borgeson stepped into the administrator position after Tricia McGrovern resigned at the end of the 2011-2012 school year to spend more time with her family.
Some of Borgeson’s responsibilities will include greeting students in the morning and seeing them off in the afternoon, she said.
“I will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the school with the awesome help of the office staff,” Borgeson said.
She is planning on teaching computer classes to students as well.
“We are in for an exciting year,” Borgeson said.
