Kuemper Announces Chad Klein As The School’s New Activities Director

Kuemper Catholic High School announced today (Friday) they have selected Chad Klein to become the Knights’ next Activities Director. Klein has taught and coached at Kuemper for the last 20 years and currently serves as the high school’s History and Government teacher, head football coach and head girls track coach. Principal, Pete Haefs, says, “I am truly looking forward to working with Mr. Klein in this new capacity. He has been an essential part of our teaching and coaching staff and I know he will carry his commitment to our faith and our students into his new role.” In 2013, Klein led the Knights to a 2A state football championship and was named the 2A Regional Coach of the Year and District 8 Coach of the Year. He is looking forward to the opportunity to expand on Kuemper’s success in their extracurriculars and says, “I believe that strong activities provide great opportunities for our students to show their many talents that they have been given and as a way for Kuemper to meet our mission of developing students’ mind, body, and soul.” Klein officially begins in his new role on July 1 and will be replacing Ryan Isgrig, who announced his resignation earlier this year after accepting a position at Marshalltown High School. Klein and his wife, Kim, have four children that attend Kuemper: a senior, Olivia; a junior, Logan; an eighth grader, Easton; and a fourth grader, Piper.
