Childcare Executive Staff

Ruth Hawk  -  Child Care Director

Ms. Ruth first came to Zion in 2009 and became a part of the child care team in 2013. Ms. Ruth has a B.S. in Elementary Education from Maranatha Baptist University. She took on the role of Childcare Director in 2015. All four of Ms. Ruth’s children, Elaine, Aaron, Jonny and Annie, have been a part of Zion Lutheran School. The best part of Ms. Ruth’s day is seeing the smiles on the faces of the kids (and the hugs that come with them). Her desire is to be an example of Christ’s love and to serve others wholeheartedly.

Julie Wiedel  -  Child Care Assistant Director

Ms. Julie came to Zion Lutheran Child Care in August of 2013 with all her childcare credentials and over 15 years of childcare experience. She began as our Lead Infant Teacher and quickly transitioned into an administrative role. In Ms. Julie’s free time, she enjoys playing soccer and volleyball and also watching her children play sports. Ms. Julie’s husband, Bill, is a teacher at Lake Country Lutheran High School and their three children, JJ, Tyler and Carly, all attend Zion Lutheran School.
