Mrs. Kuhn is coming to GSCA from St. Joseph Catholic School in Shelbyville where her time as K-5 resource, preschool teacher, and Early Learning Director have provided her with experience she will need as administrator at GSCA.

Together they have 4 children - Mason (10), Ollee (7), Mary (6), and Eli (3). They live in Shelby County, enjoy camping, and attend First Baptist Church in Greensburg.
