Bishop Ward High School

Bishop Ward Welcomes New Vice Principal!

Mr. Beaven will be bringing 22 years of experience as an educator, and holds a Master in Arts in School Leadership from Baker University.

Previously teaching in the Shawnee Mission Unified School District, Turner School District, and Christ the King in Kansas City, Kansas, Mr. Beaven is primed and qualified to assume his role as vice principal at Bishop Ward. 

Mr. Beaven is no stranger to the Bishop Ward community and is excited and honored to serve in this new role.

“Having served as a Cyclone football coach in years past makes this opportunity even more exciting because I know I am not just joining a school, but a great Christ-centered community created and maintained by committed families.”

Bishop Ward High principal Karen Hopson said, “We are so excited to have Mr. Beaven join us next year. He will be a great asset and role model in educating our students in their body, mind and souls.”

Mr. Beaven truly embodies Bishop Ward’s mission statement as his leadership will add fresh insight to Bishop Ward as they continue to provide a Catholic, college-preparatory education for each and every student.
