Homestead High School in the Mequon-Thiensville School District has officially named John Krueger as its new assistant athletic director.
Krueger has spent the past 16 years in the district as a physical education teacher and coach, and served as interim athletic and activities director at Homestead High School in 2010. As assistant athletic director, a newly created part-time position in the district, he will work closely with coaches, student-athletes, booster clubs and staff to support the successful operation of Homestead’s athletic programs.
“We are very pleased to welcome John Krueger into this important role within our school district,” said Homestead Athletic Director Erich Hinterstocker. “Throughout his time in our district, John has proven time and again to be a dedicated educator, coach and leader, serving as a positive influence and helpful mentor for our student-athletes. I know that he will do an exceptional job helping to build upon the academic and athletic successes we have been fortunate to achieve over the years.”
Krueger’s responsibilities will include the oversight of student WIAA and academic eligibility, chairing the Homestead Athletics Hall of Fame Selection Committee, assisting in event management, and coordination of student-athlete awards, among additional responsibilities.
At Homestead, Krueger has served as a football, track and golf coach, leading teams to five conference championships in track and field and 13 conference championships in golf during his tenure. He also coached the Homestead girls’ golf team to back-to-back state championships in 2011 and 2012.
Before coming to the Mequon-Thiensville School District in 2000, Krueger served as a physical education teacher at Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Menomonee Falls. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education from Winona State University and a master’s degree in Sports Administration from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.
“It is an honor to be part of one of the most respected and successful school districts in the state in terms of both academics and athletics,” Krueger said. “I am excited to begin this new role and look forward to having a positive impact on our student-athletes, coaches, staff members, parents and fans.”
