Her testimony. “I became a Christian because of this school. I grew up going to church and knew who Jesus was, but I didn’t dedicate my life to him until 1991. Two of my children started school the very first year Covenant was opened when they were 2 and 4. They would come home with stories from the Bible about people and places and events that I never heard of. I started reading the Bible and coming to Covenant and really got to know my Savior. I thank the Lord for the obedience of Pastor Ed and Loretta Williamson and their desire to ‘feed the lambs’. I was one of those lambs!”

She has been a part of Covenant since the school started. She says she’s not sure when she officially started working here because it doesn’t feel like a job and loves working with the staff, students and parents.  

Jobs here at Covenant. Mrs. Shultz says about her job here at Covenant, “I love music.  Music is my passion. I like to think of my first job here at Covenant as the music director.  Although I have not had any formal training other than piano lessons and band and chorus in high school, the Lord has gifted me to teach band, choir, drama and bell choir to the middle school.  I love to teach music to the children and I’m always looking for new and creative ways to teach the kids. We have a Christmas musical each year performed by the elementary grades and a Dinner Theater, Variety Show and Spring Concert to showcase the students’ talents. I am amazed at what the children can do and learn when it comes to music and the arts.”

Mrs. Shultz studied nursing in Lancaster and is a registered nurse. She works as one of the school nurses with the help of Darren Stockett.  She has worked in hospitals and home health agencies over the course of the years.
