Lutheran West will always have a special place in my heart for a number of reasons. My life would not be the same today without the lasting relationships that were formed there, the memories made, and the wonderful opportunities provided for me. But something I have really come to appreciate now that I’ve been gone a few years is the manner in which the faculty challenged me both academically and spiritually, encouraged me to be a leader, follow my dreams, and always do my very best. They are people I hope to emulate someday both in their character as professionals and as spiritual leaders and role models in the lives of young people. I knew that I liked the teachers while I was in their classes, but I don’t think I realized at the time just how excellent and one-of-a-kind they really are.

I could write pages about the excellent academic quality of Lutheran West and how it prepared me for my pre-med classes at Valparaiso University (consequently decided to pursue a law degree), but many other schools could have passed that test as well. For me, it was the faculty, staff, coaches and community that put Lutheran West a head above the rest. This is a place that has found a way to combine an excellent academic and extra-curricular environment with people who really love and are committed to high school students. My life would not be the same today if I had not been so blessed to have formed so many wonderful relationships at Lutheran West.

During Mrs. Miller's Biology class shadowing project, I discovered my interest in medicine. Mrs. Miller helped me secure an internship in the Cleveland Clinic’s top ranked cardiology department.
