One of McKeown’s first actions in her new role was to interview candidates for the secondary principal position. She and the WCS board narrowed it down to two extremely qualified candidates, but the position was given to Karen Mooney.
Mooney has nine years of teaching experience in Christian education. She has taught at Temple Christian and most recently at Trinity Christian Academy, where she taught students Bible, Math and Science in fifth through 12th grades. Mooney received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Educational Psychology and Master of Education degree from Dallas Baptist University. She also received her Administrative certificate in July of 2012. Outside the classroom she has coached track, cheerleading and volleyball and she herself was a former volleyball player for Howard Payne University in Brownwood.
Mooney and her family attend Trinity Bible Church, where she has served as a Sunday school teacher, VBS director, Wednesday night teacher and Awana commander.
“Mrs. Mooney has a fantastic work ethic and is excited to meet all the new students and parents here at WCS. She loves people and building relationships and most importantly Christian education, she is ready to lead WCS through this exciting journey,” stated McKeown.
WCS is a private, non-denominational school whose mission is to provide a Christ-centered educational environment where children are equipped for lives of Christian leadership and service.
The school has two campuses. The elementary campus serving grades pre-K 3 through sixth grade is located at 111 E.
