Manitowoc Lutheran High School History

Manitowoc Lutheran High School made its beginning in 1956. The idea of starting a Manitowoc area Lutheran high school had been discussed by members of the Manitowoc Conference for several years. The first organizational meeting of the Lutheran High School Survey Committee (Rev. V. Weiland, Mr. L. Wehrwein, Teacher E. Kopitske, Teacher F. Manthey, and Mr. C. Sagerman as ex-officio) was held at First German, Manitowoc in February of 1951. In 1952, Articles of Incorporation were filed with the Register of Deeds and the State of Wisconsin in the name of The Manitowoc Conference Lutheran High School Association, Inc. A Board of Directors was elected in 1953 to organize and build support for starting a Lutheran high school in the Manitowoc area. At the Association meeting in May, 1956, the members of the association voted 50 – 5 to start the ninth grade in the fall.

MLHS is a non-profit corporation chartered under the laws of the State of Wisconsin. Financial support comes from the individual members of our 23 federation churches.

Some of the federated churches also have a grade school. There are 12 grade schools in the federation and the group of schools together is referred to the Lakeshore Lutheran Schools (LLS).
