Mr. Kevin Creighton, McCulloch Elementary Principal
Hello and welcome to McCulloch Elementary! My name is Kevin Creighton and I joined the great team at Republic in 2020 as Principal of McCulloch Elementary. Previously I have spent the last seven years working in the Dent-Phelps R-III School district where I taught middle school science before transitioning to serve as the PK-8 Principal for four years. I received my Bachelors degree from Missouri University of Science and Technology, where I majored in Science Education and graduated with honors. I later received my Masters in Educational Administration from Southwest Baptist University, where I graduated in 2016.
Mr. Creighton is married and has three dogs that keep him and his wife entertained on a daily basis. I love spending time with my wife, family, and friends. I am very active in my local church where I help serve in music ministry, and I also volunteer extensively with the Missouri Boys State Program each summer, helping one thousand of Missouri’s youth learn about government, leadership, and civics through a hands on, interactive summer camp approach. I love spending time in the gym, and will always take a chance to enjoy a good book whenever possible.
