My name is John Roney, and I am excited to be a coach for the 2022 season of RPSA Cross Country! I graduated from Central Michigan University in May of 2022, and completed my student teaching at Renaissance during the Spring of 2022. I have now transitioned into the role of the Visual and Performing Arts Teacher, track coach, and XC coach at Renaissance, and I am very excited to continue guiding students through developing their passions! I personally have a passion for running and endurance events. I ran XC and track in high school, and have since kept up with running and fitness through races, hiking, and biking. I also love to bikepack and have recently completed my first century of riding in the Summer of 2021! I strive to assist students in developing a foundation of interdependent leadership skills, through activities like Cross Country, that they can continue to build on throughout their life. I am looking forward to a phenomenal 2022 RPSA Cross Country season!
