Welcome New Staff
We are proud to announce that the LHSAGM has named Mr. John Meunier as the Director of We Play For Him (WPFH). WPFH is our affiliated organization to the three High Schools that is responsible for and focuses on delivering our Brand, Mission, Vision and Core Values to the area of youth activities including our Thunder programs, Jr. Spartan programs and Jr. Red Knight programs. This includes band, athletics and other youth programs that are offered to the communities that Milwaukee Lutheran, Martin Luther and Lake Country Lutheran High Schools serve.John will be responsible for all of the operations related to WPFH and will report directly to the WPFH Board of Directors. John will work closely with the three Athletic Directors of our three high schools so that the exceptional experiences that we are attempting to ensure at the high school level are also available to our families with kids who are in grades 3-8. John is responsible for the WPFH programs at all three schools, however, initially he will be spending the majority of his time focusing on the programs at LCL and developing a robust online platform where all of the WPFH teams and groups will be able to navigate easily all things related to WPFH.
CEO Cole adds, “I am very excited about the opportunity for the LHSAGM and WPFH to add John to the team. The most important thing in our organization is our culture. The behaviors that we exhibit need to be a reflection of our Brand, Mission, Vision and our Core Values. As young future students in our three schools are exposed to the way our coaches and administrators invest and care about them I am filled with joy that John will be leading our organization in regards to these families. I have known John for a long time and have seen him interact with these young kids with the vision of providing them with an exceptional experience. We are blessed to have John joining us. When you see John in the hallways please make him feel welcome and say hi.”
