Principal and teacher join Adventist school

Students returning to Mid-Columbia Adventist School were greeted by two new smiles this week — those of new Principal Peter Hardy and Bobbi DeWebber the new fifth through eighth grade teacher.

For Hardy, who purchased a house in White Salmon, working in the Gorge is sort of a long-time-in-coming fulfillment of a goal that began decades ago, when he was a theology student at Walla Walla College.

“I love this area and have been coming here since 1985 to windsurf and camp with my family,” he said in his biography.

Hardy said when he was teaching for Upper Columbia Academy near Spokane, he would regularly drive the four to five hours from to the Gorge to windsurf for one day.

“And sometimes, there’d be no wind,” he said. “So I’d drive back.”

Since he arrived in July, however, Hardy hasn’t been on his board a single time.

“Just knowing it’s there and I can go at any time makes me feel good,” he said.
