“This is a chance to work in a larger district,” Luebbert said.
Luebbert, who graduated from Sweet Springs High School in 1986, received his undergraduate degree from the University of Central Missouri.  He continued his education at William Woods then received his Educational Specialist Degree from Missouri State.
Luebbert’s first job was with the Sweet Springs School District where he taught biology and physical education and coached football and basketball.  He next went to Knob Noster where he taught biology and was the assistant football coach and assistant basketball coach.  Then for two years he worked for the Sedalia School District where he taught anatomy and physical science as well as working as assistant football and basketball coach.  His longest tenure was with the Marshfield School District where he started as the assistant principal then moved into the job as principal.  He spent 15 years in Marshfield.
Luebbert and his wife of 22 years Michelle are the parents of twin sons Matt and Jake, who are juniors at WHS, and a daughter Lauren, who is a sixth grader at John Boise Middle School.  Michelle and the children will be remaining in Warsaw until the boys graduate.
As he leaves WHS, Luebbert said he was proud of the upgrade in the technology at the high school during his tenure.  “We now have Chromebooks in all the classrooms and the faculty has been trained to use them as part of their curriculum,” Luebbert said.
He was also proud of the turnaround in school pride.  “I had heard what a great following the Wildcats had then when I got here I didn’t see it,” said Luebbert.  “But now, we are coming around and seeing some success and the fans are coming back.”
