New head of school at WCS answers questions

Westminster Christian School welcomed Scott Jones as head of school at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.

Jones came to Westminster with an impressive record of leadership and success in Christian education and business. He most recently served as head of school for Black Forest Academy, a prestigious Christian boarding school in Kandern, Germany.

DC Memo: ‘Trump: Season 2’ running out of plot twists

This week in Washington, Congress tried to negotiate a way out of a year-end shutdown over the border wall, which would be a Christmas miracle at this point. Who will get the lump of coal: President Trump, Chuck and Nancy, or congressional Republicans?

Greetings from Washington, which is clearly trying to close out 2018 in the most 2018 way possible: cramming as much news as possible into a short period of time. Let’s have at it.
