Thank you, Dr. Glenn Coltharp, for serving as our Interim Principal from the summer leading up to our 2023 school year. Your leadership has been essential to our success this year.

(Dr. Coltharp's introduction letter from Summer 2023)

Dear Parents,

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and let you know how excited I am to be a part of the Martin Luther School family. The Board approved my employment and I have assumed the duties as the Interim Principal here at the School. I will be here on a part-time basis as we move ahead and continue meeting the educational needs of the students.

I have completed over forty years in the educational profession. The first twenty years I served at the K-12 level and the last twenty years I have been serving at the higher education level. My K-12 experience has included teaching at the kindergarten, second grade, and fourth grade level. Administratively I have served in K-12 as an elementary principal, middle school principal, principal of the State School for Severely Handicapped, Assistant Superintendent, and Superintendent. At the higher education level I have served as the Dean of Education at Missouri Southern and Vice President of Academic Affairs and President at Crowder College.

I appreciate your support and understanding as our school has gone through our recent transition time period. If I can be of assistance to you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.
