Kautzer steps
down from
School Board
Submitted by Kohler School
Board President Marlene Yang
School Board Treasurer, Matt
Kautzer has announced his resignation from the School Board.
Kautzer was first appointed to the
Board in October, 2012 and has
served as Treasurer since May,
2013.
In his resignation to the Board,
Mr. Kautzer said “It has been a
true pleasure to serve along side
you, and to serve my community
and the school over the last 2+
years. I’m extremely confident in
the direction the school is headed,
and I have complete confidence in
the leadership provided by the
Board and administration.
I consider myself fortunate to
live in the Village of Kohler where
we possess the recipe for success
within our schools. Among many
other attributes, we are blessed to
have committed teachers and support staff, engaged parents and

families, effective volunteer organizations, a supportive community, a clear focus on setting high
standards, a drive for continuous
improvement, supportive business
partners, a dedicated school board,
a high achieving student body, and
a tireless and competent administrative team.
I’m humbled to have played a
small part in all of this and, more
than anything, proud to be part of
the Kohler School District. I look
forward to being involved in other
capacities. While many challenges
lie ahead, even greater accomplishments will follow.”
School Board President, Marlene Yang said” Mr. Kautzer has
provided the District with sound
financial oversight, thoughtful
leadership, and a strong commitment to education. The School
Board would like to thank him for
his service.”

National Blue Ribbon
bookkeeper leaves
her mark

Ruth Moncrief retires after 24 years of service
to the Kohler School District – will close the
books on June 30 for the final time
Submitted by Quynh D. Trueblood,
Superintendent Kohler School
District

Over the years, Ruth diligently
kept the district’s books in impeccable shape. She is an exceptional
person: hard working, meticulous,
humble, hilarious, genuine, and endearing.
Ruth’s career began at the Sheboygan County Court House in the
Auditor's Office. After more than
nine years, she was ready for a
change and became the bookkeeper for the Sheboygan County
Handicapped Children's Education
Board, known also as Lightfoot
School, located in Sheboygan
Falls. After Lightfoot School
closed, Dr. John Egan, who was
superintendent of Kohler Schools
at the time, hired Ruth. Twentyfour years later, Ruth retires after
37 years in the field of government
accounting.
Ruth warmly offered, “I will
miss being with the teachers and
staff on a daily basis, but I will also
miss helping them with their
needs – be it in the form of a reimbursement check, help with a field
trip, or offering help with entering
a budget request for books or supplies. However, I will not miss

summer or during the school year.

Medal of Honor nominee and former
Kohler resident takes honor flight

Glenn Dohrmann was wounded three times
in Korea
In 1950 Elizabeth “Betty” Roessler of
Kohler married Glenn Dohrmann from
Shelby, Iowa. The two of them were both in
the military in Fort Ord, California until
they settled in Kohler in 1954. Betty passed
away in 1968. Glenn remarried in 1969 and
the family left Kohler in 1973, moving to
Cedarburg where the couple currently resides.
Dohrmann served with the U.S. Army in
Korea, both before and during the Korean
War. Though the average length of stay for
an officer on the front line in Korea was four
months, he served on the front lines for eight
months. During peacetime Dohrmann was
involved in the first free elections in the
country in 1948.

In a March interview by the Ozaukee
press, Dohrmann said he was shot three
times during the last battle he fought in and,
decades later, was nominated for the Medal
of Honor. He received the Silver Star — the
military’s third highest award for combat
valor — mainly because there were so few
surviving witnesses to testify to what had
happened during the battle for Old Baldy,
Hill 346, on Oct. 17, 1951.
Dohrmann said that by the time the battle
was over, only 54 of the 200 men in his
company were still standing. They spent 14
days trying to take the hill, suffering 1,400
casualties.
This past April 18, Dohrmann along with
44 other Korean War veterans took the Stars

and Stripes Honor Flight to Washington
D.C. to visit the war memorials on the National Mall.
Dohrmann’s amazing war stories published in the Ozaukee Press, as well as the
struggles he faced as a child – beginning
with the loss of his mother during childbirth
when Dorhmann was two, then the loss of
the family farm during the Great Depression
which drove his father to be temporarily institutionalized – can be found by visiting
Facebook.com/kohlervillager. (Facebook
account not required to view the postings).
Photos, etc. from the honor flight can also

Kohler teen to spend school year in Germany
through youth exchange program
Nine Wisconsin teenagers, including Brigita Kant of Kohler,
have been named as 2015 recipients of the Congress-Bundestag
Youth
Exchange
Program
(CBYX) administered by Youth
For Understanding USA (YFU).
The program, which is in jeopardy due to a 50% proposed
budget cut by the U.S. Department of State, is jointly funded by
the U.S. Congress and the Ger-

man Bundestag and sponsored by
the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural
Affairs. This prestigious full-tuition scholarship provides selected high school students with
the opportunity to study abroad
and explore local culture in Germany for an academic year.
The CBYX Program was established in 1983 to help strengthen
ties between Germany and the US

by selecting American students to
live with a German host family
and German students to live with
an American host family for the
course of a school year.
For additional information

student, volunteering, or community cultural tours, visit YFUUSA.org.

Kohler Co. announced that
Salon at Sports Core, one of several premier salons in Sheboygan
County, will relocate to The Shops

of Aveda salons based in Appleton
and Green Bay.
As part of the Salon Aura group,
the studio will become a top-tier
Lifestyle Aveda Salon in Wisconsin and the only one in the county.
The new location affords a beautiful natural setting on the shores of
Wood Lake, creating a better environment for associates and existing
clientele and ample parking. The

innovative design and leadingedge equipment of the new $1-million, 5,000-square-foot spacious
salon will offer a destination for relaxation and rejuvenation and
allow the salon to expand its client
base. Salon Aura has signed a 10year lease for the space.
“For more than 25 years the
Salon at Sports Core has served the
community, but the Salon has long
since outgrown its space. We are
excited to expand services and
offer guests an enhanced experience,” said Michael Belot, general
manager of Destination Kohler.
“Under Salon Aura, the Salon will

thrive and continue to be a staple
of the community as a resident of
Shops at Woodlake.”
The expanded footprint of Salon
Aura will provide more work
space for stylists, a broader menu
of services, large retail area, additional stations, new leading-edge
equipment, private rooms for specialty services and employment
opportunities. Sports Core members will continue to receive a 20
percent discount on salon services,
and the salon’s pricing structure
will remain comparable.
Renovations on the space will
begin this Spring, with opening ex-

pected in August. The Salon at
Sports Core closing will coincide
with the opening of Salon Aura,
with no interruption in client service. Salon Aura will employ all
Salon at Sports Core associates
and maintain seniority of stylists.
Salon Aura is an upscale salon
business led by owner Jim Gill, focusing on the Total Beauty Experience since 1984, with salons in
Fox Valley and Green Bay. The
Kohler salon will be its fifth location. Salon Aura is an established
business with Midwestern roots focusing on the welfare of its team,
including continuing education
