"A Blessing From God!"

One vote was the difference in approving or not approving the pursuit of some land for the brand new Manitowoc Lutheran High School.  The land was located “half a mile north of Waldo on Highway 10 and 141.”  Now, I’m not exactly sure where would be today, but it sounds...

"He Will Always Matter"

There will be a new teacher of Religion 11 this year. I will not be the teacher. I will miss that. But I have other things to take care of. He will do a good job. One thing I have already emphasized to him is that no matter what part of church history or what doctrine he will go through with the...

"We are ALL Under God's Grace"

1979 was a year when several new area Lutheran high schools began.  Thus, those schools are or will be celebrating forty years of ministry these days.  Our own school was already twenty-three years old by then.  The newly-formed high schools were surely hoping for the kind of...

"It Has Always Been This Way"

MLHS is owned and operated by a federation of congregations in the Manitowoc area.  It was not always that way.  Initially, the school was owned and operated by an association of individuals (who were members of those area congregations).  The spirit and dedication of the association...

"ESL 10th Anniversary"

This coming year will be the tenth year that we have offered ESL at MLHS.  Now, first of all, ESL stands for “English as a Second Language.”  And the reason why its tenth anniversary is getting highlighted is basically this:  It’s something important we do with some...

"Our God has Blessed us Mightily!"

In 1960 the MLHS Association made a huge decision, one that continues to affect us mightily this very day.  They purchased some property on the northwest side of Manitowoc that would become the future home of the school.  See, the size of the school had expanded so much in the first few...

"There is Always Room for More"

It’s graduation time again at MLHS!  This will be the sixtieth graduating class.  And once again, the ceremony will be held in the gymnasium.  There’s plenty of room for visitors and family to attend!  But this was not always the case at MLHS.  The first ten...

"Mission Minded"

We have a history of being mission-minded here.  In fact, the northeast Wisconsin area was really the first mission effort on the part of the Wisconsin Synod!  The synod began in 1850, and by 1851, congregations in the Manitowoc area had begun to form.  The corridor between Milwaukee...
