Longtime principal announces he will retire
ELKHART -- Allan Dueck, principal of Bethany Christian Schools, said recently he plans to retire at the end of this calendar year.
He's been the principal since 1995, and said in a statement he's enjoyed his time at the school.
"During my 19 years here, I've been deeply impressed with the integration of faith development with academic excellence," Dueck said in the statement.
