Joe Gunderson is Olathe Northwest’s new Athletic Director.
Having spent 9 years at Center High School it’s safe to say he’s more than prepared for the job. During his time at Center High School, he was a Principal for two years and an Assistant Principal for seven years.
Now that he’s here at ONW, his goal is to meet and get to know the students, teachers, parents and the community overall. Forming these relationships is also why he works in Education to begin with. He says he had two outstanding teachers in High School that inspired him to pursue this field: his History teacher Mr. Pennington and his Business/Law teacher as well as Football Coach Herold Wamsgons.
No matter what he does, he wants to make sure that he’s doing his best and believes he can get the job done.
