We Are Walther Newsletter, June 2022

Greetings from Walther!
Here at the corner of 9th and Chicago we have successfully concluded another year, thanks to the grace of God! Our 43 graduates are off to some wonderful colleges and we anticipate welcoming another 70-plus freshmen in the fall.
The end of a school year is always incredibly busy, but full of so many wonderful and meaningful events and occasions. Let me share with you a “day in the life” of Walther just this past week. My day began by attending an Eagle Scout ceremony for one of our students, Nathan Lichucki. After graduating from Trinity Lombard, Nathan joined Walther as our only full-time virtual student this year due to some really challenging medical issues that keep him at home. In fact, he earned 77 merit badges virtually–and got all As at Walther! His medical team allowed him to take part in a moving outdoor ceremony I was blessed to attend together with our Counselor, Diane Palumbo.
After that I headed to Walther to host a gathering of Luther South alumni from across the decades. They had been looking for an adopted “home” to display some of their trophies and memorabilia, so Walther gladly gave them one of our trophy cases and a plaque in honor of the Braves–and hosted a wonderful reunion for our fellow Lutheran High School brothers and sisters in Christ.
Finally, I got to see our annual school musical that evening. Talk about talent! Our students performed Disney’s High School Musical, and it was a top-rate production that will not soon be forgotten! What a great opportunity our students have to develop and display their God-given talents!
Have a blessed and peaceful summer; see you in the fall!
