An Evening with the Empress of
Soul, Gladys Knight
Kohler Foundation welcomes
Gladys Knight to Kohler Memorial Theatre on Friday, March 11 at
8 p.m. as the season finale of the
2015-16 Distinguished Guest Series.
A seven-time Grammy winner,
Gladys Knight has enjoyed #1 hits
in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult
Contemporary.
Georgia-born, Knight began
performing gospel music at age
four in the Mount Mariah Baptist Church and sang as a guest
soloist with the Morris Brown
College Choir. Three years later,
she won the grand prize on television’s “Ted Mack’s Amateur
Hour,” and the following year, her
mother Elizabeth Knight created
Gladys Knight and the Pips (with
Gladys’ brother and cousins). The
group debuted their first album in
1960, when Knight was just sixteen. With Knight singing lead
and The Pips providing lush harmonies and graceful choreography, the group went on to achieve
icon status, having recorded some
of the most memorable songs of
the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Top
20 hits, like “Every Beat of My

Kohler students
participate in Trees
for Tomorrow
Trees for Tomorrow, located in
Eagle River, Wisconsin, is an accredited natural resource specialty
school. The mission of Trees for
Tomorrow is to promote sustainable management of our resources
through transformative educational experiences.
This fall, seven high school students in Honors Biology at Kohler
High School participated in the
high school component at Trees
for Tomorrow. Founded in 1944
by nine paper companies, the
Trees for Tomorrow Natural Resources Education center is used
year round to educate students
about the natural environment in
Wisconsin, as well as its need for
preservation and restoration. The
program also teaches students
about various outdoor activities,
from recreation to survival, and
emphasizes leadership and cooperation principles.
Christy Zheng, Tilydia Xiong,
Tiffany Xiong, Hallie Wollin, Issie Smith, Frances Schueller, and
Rachel Safford were transported

to Eagle River, along with students from neighboring school
districts, to participate in Trees
for Tomorrow. During workshops
students contributred in field studies conducted in the forests, lakes,
and streams of the area. On the
trip, they joined in many activities
including learning survival skills
and geocaching. The group also
enjoyed a hike along the cliff sides
in the Porcupine Mountains in the
Upper Peninsula, where they got
to see breathtaking views over the
cliff as well as an old copper mining path with winding streams and
waterfalls. The student team stated that the trip not only taught important environmental skills, but
also gave them great leadership
skills and an even greater ability
to work as a team.
The students and the school
would like to thank all of the
sponsors who made the trip possible; Kohler Company and the
Sheboygan County Conservation
Association.

Heals fire trucks across the United
States and Canada. One hundred
percent of proceeds donated to or
fundraised through this organization are used locally and serve our
neighbors in our community.

than 70 community agencies and

senior care, poverty, disasters, illiteracy and homelessness. It provides organizations a connection

KLC football program announces
2016 team captains
February 8, 2015 – The high
school football program for
Kohler Lutheran Christian (KLC)
has recently announced their captains for the upcoming 2016 football season. The players are junior
running back/linebacker Sam
Kohler; junior center/linebacker
Luke Silvestri and junior quar-

terback/defensive back Brayden
Van Ess. All three players earned
all-conference selections last season, led by Van Ess, who was a
unanimous first team choice as
quarterback.
This is the first time the coaching staff has ever named captains
before the start of the football

season. “We had great leadership from these juniors during
the 2015 football season,” says
Matt Zavada, head coach of KLC.
“These young men exhibit the
leadership qualities we need to
continue moving the program in
the right direction. Our thought is
simple – let the leaders lead and

build chemistry and camaraderie
throughout the off-season, which
will pay big dividends this upcoming season. With the quality
and quantity of returning lettermen we have coming back, we
have very high expectations for
2016. Strong leadership will be
key to our success.”

Last year the KLC cooperative
program had its first winning season in the history of the program,
finishing 6-3. They also qualified
for the playoffs for the first time,
bowing out to top-seed Freedom
in the first round.
