Farewell & God’s Blessings

As this school year ends, we bid farewell to four faculty and staff members and thank the Lord for their faithful service. Join us in wishing them God’s richest blessings as they leave KML.

Mr. David Bartelt, Superintendent – Retiring after serving 20 years at KML, 41 years total in the public ministry

Miss Belinda Diercks, Learning Center Assistant – Retiring after serving 3 years at KML

Mrs. Lori Knoll, In-House Substitute Teacher – Pursuing other opportunities after serving 7 years at KML

Mrs. Dorothy Martin, Administrative Assistant to Student Services – Retiring after serving 23 years at KML



New Scholarship Fund Established

In recognition of Mr. David Bartelt’s service as KML’s first and only superintendent, an endowed fund titled the David W. Bartelt Legacy Scholarship has been created. This fund will provide annual support for student assistance and will encourage more teenagers to attend KML and hear God’s Word every day of their high school years. Ultimately, this fund will help educate future generations of students, and encourage and equip them to grow in their Christian faith.

We also invite you to make a gift to this fund in honor of Mr. Bartelt’s service to KML. Every donation will increase the value of the endowment and will increase the amount of assistance provided in future years. You can make a gift through a check or online (kmlhs.org/donate). Simply make the gift to the KML Foundation. If giving online, enter your amount, and then go to the bottom in the Optional section, choose “In Honor” and then indicate your wish to have it go to the David W. Bartelt Legacy Scholarship fund. Thank you for your gifts in honor of “Bart” as his impact continues long into the future.
