Today we celebrate the 25 years (yes, you read that right, 25 years!) of service Loren Larrabee gave to Lutheran High. Over those 25 years, his responsibilities have run the gamut. He taught PE, Health, Christian Sexuality, Strenght Training, and Pre-Algebra at the Denver Lutheran campus. 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.
As the new school year approaches, we are excited to welcome our new staff into our community! Let's meet the rest of our new staff members today.

This month’s Teacher Spotlight features Megan Obermueller who has been teaching Spanish at Lutheran High School for six years. Read on to learn more about her and why she chose to make LuHi her home.
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.
For this month’s teacher spotlight, we feature Ms. Andersen, our music teacher. She has been teaching at Lutheran High for 5 years.
Mr. Craig Parrott has spent more than fifty years in schools and jokes that he still doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up! But once you get to know him, it’s clear that God has gifted him with the passion and talents to teach God’s Word to high schoolers. LuHi is very happy to have our veteran Theology teacher return after teaching twenty-one years at Denver Lutheran High and nine years at Faith Christian.
In this month’s teacher spotlight we are privileged to get to know Mr. Monte, the new Algebra I and Statistics teacher. This is his first year at LuHi and his eighth year of teaching. Read on to discover what inspired him to come to LuHi, his advice for pursuing a career using math, and what his favorite superpower is!
We have been back at it in a unique way at Lutheran High. In person classes are going well and we are excited to witness the success of distance learning in each classroom via Zoom. We know this has presented challenges for students and their families — their adaptability has been inspiring! We wanted to find out how our teachers were experiencing the changes in their own classrooms, so we sat down with Alicia Kidston (Dean of Women, English Teacher), Hannah Swafford (Social Studies Teacher), and David Black (Teacher, Director of Lights Academy). Each gave us a glimpse into the changes they’ve made to contribute to the success of their students.
As our students and teachers welcome a fresh start in 2020, we say goodbye to the year 2019 and also to the decade. But did you know that Mr. David Ness is also celebrating his own decade as principal at LuHi? For the past ten years, Mr. Ness has been guiding us with his God-given wisdom and leadership skills through countless changes, challenges, growth opportunities and improvements. In celebration of his tenth year anniversary, he’s here to share some insights into his life and role here at LuHi.
