Campion Academy has hired Jeff Kluchesky as the new Plant Services Director starting in July. Kluchesky comes to us from Gem State Academy in Idaho, where he has worked as Plant Services Director for the past three years.
Kluchesky’s father was a pastor, but even though he moved around a lot growing up, he considers himself an Oregonian from John Day, Oregon. He attended Gem State Academy where he met his wife of 21 years, Amy Kluchesky, in the cafeteria. Kluchesky has two children, a boy named Leslie who will be a freshman in the fall and a daughter named Portia who will be attending Walla Walla University. He enjoys working on cars, fly fishing, motor cycles, and watching hockey.
Since high school, he has had many interesting jobs. He worked at Pacific Press Publishing as a binder operator, he owned a general contractor construction company, he was a small engine mechanic, he was an officer at the state penitentiary, he has worked as a firefighter, and he was the Plant Services Director at Gem State for three and a half years before accepting the job at Campion. When speaking about being a Plant Services Director, he commented, “I have always wanted to do this job ever since I can remember. I have been able to experience a wide variety of skill sets to be able to do this job. When the opportunity came, I snatched it up as quick as I could.”
When asked about what he is most looking forward to, he said, “It’s always fun working with students and seeing how they go through all four years and how they grow. Being part of that is awesome.” The Kluchesky’s will arrive at Campion in June, and we want to welcome them to the Campion family.
