Kevin Hardesty, Athletic Director/Vice Principal

Athletic Director Kevin Hardesty, has been working and living at Rio since 2010.  In addition to teaching all PE classes at Rio, Coach Hardesty teaches health class and coaches football, basketball, and track & field.  He also coordinates the intramural program in the evenings during rec time, which has a high participation rate among students.

Coach Hardesty enjoys snow skiing, water skiing and hiking with his wife and two kids. One of the reasons they like being at Rio is the amount of outdoor activities there are on campus.

“I really enjoy spending time with all the students and sharing my love for the outdoors that God has blessed us with. Nothing beats spending a night outside in the beautiful world He has created,” says Coach Hardesty.
