Kerr-Vance Academy Loses Dear Friend, Teacher and Colleague

Kerr-Vance Academy lost a dear friend, teacher, and colleague on Saturday when Dr. John Steinbaugh passed away unexpectedly.  Dr. Steinbaugh taught Chemistry and Physics at Kerr Vance for the last 12 years.  He is remembered by students and staff as a kind, humble man with a quick wit.  Students also recall that he provided encouragement and helped them through some of the  toughest courses at KVA.  Dr. Steinbaugh made personal connections with each of his students.  Parents recall him asking about their children even after they had graduated.  He was very interested in their success.  Many students credit Dr. Steinbaugh with helping them be ready for the rigors of college academics.  He will be greatly missed by the students, staff, and community at Kerr-Vance Academy.  Our prayers go out to his wife Barb, his son Alex, and their family.
A celebration of John’s life will be held on Saturday.
