Hello, my name is Gary Merritt and this is my nineteenth year in the Andover School District. This is my seventh year at the eCademy, in addition to spending twelve years at Andover High as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director.
I am married and have four kids; John 30, Jordan 27, Hayden 22, a freshman at Kansas State and my daughter Chase who is a freshman at Coastal Carolina University.
I was born and raised in Denver Colorado. I came to Wichita to attend Friends University, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education with an emphasis in Social Studies. I taught in Wichita for nine years at Wichita East and Wichita North. I received my masters at Wichita State University before moving to Andover.
I am very happy to be part of the eCademy learning experience. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
