Charles City, Iowa- Bryan Jurrens loves community. From living in Waverly, to educating at Waterloo East and now running Charles City High School, Jurrens says he’s found his home.
He says Charles City welcomed him and his wife with open arms during their visit last week. “You can see everyone has a lot of pride for the community. Everyone wants to be a Comet,” says Jurrens. But one key quality stood out to Superintendent Dr. Dan Cox about Jurrens: diversity.
Cox says Jurrens has worked in one of the most diverse places in Iowa at Waterloo East.
“With an ever-increasing diverse community here in Charles City, he’s got lots of experience in a variety of areas that make him a good fit here,” Cox said.

Jurrens says he’s excited to get to work, but his first goal is to getting familiar with the town and the people in it. There’s something about everyone wanting to be a Comet, for Jurrens it’s about bringing everyone together.
