PDS Announces New Chaplain Appointments for the 2020-2021 School Year

Congratulations to Darilyn Christenbury and Tony Rudzena. These two beloved teachers have been appointed as Chaplain/Bible Teacher next year at PDS.

Darilyn Christenbury has been teaching the Bible to our youngest students for 18 years. She is an integral member of the EC faculty and has led many programs at our school. Mrs. Christenbury will be the Chaplain and Bible teacher to EC families and faculty.

While relatively new to PDS, Tony Rudzena has had an enormous impact on the 4th through 6th-grade boys. In addition to his Bible teaching, Mr. Rudzena is a beloved coach of sports and legos. Next year, he will serve as Chaplain in the Elementary school.

Both Darilyn and Tony will work together to oversee the spiritual development of our boys and faculty. They look forward to partnering with families as we seek to develop boys in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.

Mark Fruitt will continue as the Principal of the Elementary School and add oversight of the Building Boys, Making Men program. Mark has been leading elements of the BBMM program for years and is excited to continue the excellence that has been in place for nearly two decades.
