Meet the Principal: Cary Stamas

Cary and Jeni Stamas

Cary Stamas is a nerd, he says, touting his degrees in physics and math as evidence.

But he also loves to draw, read and scuba dive.

No big surprise he fits right in as the new leader at MySchool@Kent, which serves students with a variety of interests.

Stamas, who has spent time as a teacher and Asst. Principal for Sparta High School, also enjoyed coaching football and wrestling, and was the district’s science curriculum chair.

Since receiving his teaching certificate, physics and math degrees from University of Miami and Hope College, Stamas received his Ed Leadership masters from Central Michigan University, and is currently completing a PhD in K-12 leadership from Western Michigan University.

According to Stamas, his first priority is “supporting the work of students and staff to help students achieve their goals,” and he looks forward to “making a positive impact on the lives of the students.”
