Welcome, New Faculty & Staff!
Join us in welcoming new faculty and staff members to the KML family!
Mrs. Joanna Ericson also joins KML as a Learning Center Assistant. Her background is in music education, and she has previously held positions in a couple different WELS high schools as the grade school band director, choir director, and high school band director as well as having her own piano studio and helping with music and worship at her former church. In July 2020, Mrs. Ericson and her family moved from Oshkosh to Mequon where her husband, Nathan, is the new Library Director and Director of Educational Technology at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. They and their three daughters, Ellie (15, KML ’24), Ginny (12), and Emma (10), attend church at Christ Alone in Thiensville.
Mrs. Becky Kemnitz worked with the international students at KML from 2015 – 2016 and is excited to be back, now as the new Administrative Assistant to Student Services. She and her husband, Tim, have been blessed with two children, both of whom are KML alumni: Tyler (’16) and Taylor (’21). The Kemnitzes are members at Shepherd of the Hills in West Bend.
Mr. Craig Kitzrow taught at KML from 1980-1994 and rejoins us as another of our Learning Center Assistants. He and his wife, Laurie, are members at Bethlehem, Menomonee Falls/Germantown. The Kitzrows are blessed to have six grown children and nine grandchildren.
Mrs. Sara Miller also joins KML as a Learning Center Assistant. She is a professional sign language interpreter who also loves group fitness, specifically dance cardio and strength classes. She and her family keep busy with sporting events as her husband, Andy, is a Jr. Chargers coach, and their sons, Wyatt (9) and Levi (7), both play in the Jr. Chargers program. The Millers attend church at Peace, Hartford.
Mrs. Luba Rohrback has substituted at KML in the past and now joins us more regularly as our second in-house substitute teacher, job sharing with Mr. Hering. For five years early in their marriage, Mrs. Rohrback and her husband, Mark (pastor at Redeemer, Cedarburg), were missionaries in Tomsk, Russia, and their oldest two children were born there. The Rohrbacks have been blessed with three children who are past, current, and future KML students: Lara (’21), Henry (’24), and Sophia (’27).
Join us in-person or via livestream on Friday, September 3, at 9:07 AM as we offer our praise to God for allowing KML to begin the 48th year of instructing our youth in the truth of God’s Word. New faculty member Mr. Benjamin Walter will be installed during the service, as will members of the KML faculty with significant leadership changes:

KML Charity Golf Outing a Great Success
The KML Foundation hosted the annual Charity Golf Outing on Monday, July 19, at the prestigious West Bend Country Club. Once again, God blessed the day with great weather and great fellowship as we enjoyed some golf and a fantastic opportunity to support the KML Foundation and ultimately KML’s student assistance fund. Initial reports indicate we raised more than $30,000 which will be added to the Foundation’s Fairway Fund. Thanks to our sponsors, donors, and participants for making this a special event which will have a lasting impact.
THANK YOU to the many supporters of KML who helped raise money at this year’s Masquerade Gala on Friday, August 13. We are excited to report the KML family exceeded the donation challenge from our anonymous donor, also giving generously through the silent & live auctions & event games. Proceeds from the gala will be split with 20% going to current student assistance and 80% being invested for future assistance through our KML Foundation.
Thank you again for your generous support of student assistance and the KML ministry!
Save the Date!
Registration & more info coming soon at foundation.kmlhs.org.
