Rachelle Robbins might be new to the role of Athletic Director, but she's no stranger to school athletics. In high school, she was a four-sport athlete (basketball, softball, track, and cross country), and in college, she ran track and cross country at Concordia University, Nebraska. After her college graduation, she started her coaching career and now has an impressive resume, including 18 years as a track coach and 13 years as a cross country coach, plus a handful of years as a girl's basketball and tennis coach. Coaching has taken her from Nebraska to Arizona, Texas, and Colorado.

It’s important to step back from our daily rhythms sometimes and reflect on all the wonderful work God is doing at Lutheran High. Thanks to His provision, our student body is growing and thriving; our facilities are growing; our teachers lead with compassion and wisdom; and even when we don’t see them in our classrooms and hallways, many staff members work tirelessly to keep the engine under our “ministry hood” running efficiently.
You might know him as LuHi’s talented sports videographer, filming at sports games and editing highlight reels for students and families. Students may recall his interesting archeological insights that he shares as a guest teacher in theology or history classes. But what you may not realize is that John Rinks’ primary role at LuHi is as an ambassador and storyteller.

He’s coached football and basketball - both at the Denver campus - and served as the Athletic Director at both campuses. Most recently, he was the Director of Campus Activities.

This time around, we had a chat with Mr. Kohlwey. The youngest of 4 siblings (by 8 years), he grew up just outside Milwaukee, WI and spent time helping on his uncle’s nearby farm. He has always had a passion for basketball, playing as a child and coaching as an adult. Mr. Kohlwey earned his BS in Secondary Education, majoring in Theology and Coaching after graduating from Milwaukee Lutheran High School. Shortly after completing his undergraduate studies, he and his wife were married. They relocated to Rockford, IL where Mr. Kohlwey became the Spiritual Life Director and head boy’s basketball coach at Rockford Lutheran High School - all while furthering his own education. He earned his Masters degree in Family Life Education in 1998. At that time, the Kohlweys moved to Seward, NE and he spent the next 18 years as an instructor and coach at Concordia University. Here are a few questions we asked of Mr. Kohlwey to learn more about him after his first 5 years at LuHi.
