There is a new athletic director for the PatrickHenrySchool district.


            Joe Kirkendall has been hired as AD and high school social studies teacher.  Kirkendall is also the head football coach for Patrick Henry.


            He begins his athletic director duties immediately.  The position was vacated by Bryan Hieber last month after Hieber accepted the Elementary Principal position for Patrick Henry. 


            High School Principal Josh Biederstedt said he is very excited to have Joe in the school building with young people every day. 


Kirkendall has nearly 15 years of coaching experience and served for one year as assistant athletic director for Lakota.  He and his wife live in the PatrickHenrySchool district and have 3 children.
