Sailors News · South Christian hires David Kool as Athletic Director


South Christian High School Principal Aaron Meckes has announced the hiring of David Kool as the school’s next Athletic Director.


Some of you may remember David as a 2006 graduate of South Christian. Most recently, he has served as the Boys Varsity Basketball Coach and Assistant Athletic Director at Holland Christian High School. We have full confidence that David’s experience and skills are going to be a great addition to our Athletic Department. More importantly, David’s love for South Christian was obvious, and his passion for our school’s mission was evident throughout the process. South Christian is a place that had a profound impact on his life, and he is excited to serve in a place that was so formative for him.


David wrote in his application:

“As a South Christian alumnus, I have great pride and passion for the school that helped shape the man I am today. I attribute my success and character to my experiences and relationships that I built at South Christian. It would be my dream to be able to serve the students, athletes, coaches, and parents at a place which I call home. I would pour my heart and soul into the school which did the same for me.”


We are thrilled to welcome David and his wife, Olivia; daughter, Mackenzy (age 3 in July); and son, Carter (age 6 months) back to our community.
