Bishop Luers has been blessed to have wonderful volunteers that put in their time, talent and treasure to our school. On February 27th, Bishop Luers honored four of those special people that have given over one hundred and six combined years of service to Bishop Luers High School.
Diane Karst has been a Math teacher at Bishop Luers High School since 1983. She began her teaching career at Huntington Catholic School. Diane has served as the Assistant Athletic Director since 1981 supervising many sporting events. Diane has coached many sports at Bishop Luers High School and Huntington Catholic including track, Lady Knights Basketball in 1985-1986 and volleyball.
Leo Stronzcek has been assisting Bishop Luers High School since 1970’s. He was a familiar face on the football chain gang for many Friday nights in the 1970s and ‘80s. He began keeping the scorebook for Luers volleyball and basketball games beginning in 1988. Leo was one of the founding fathers of the former Luers Bingo Club, the predecessor to the Athletic Booster Club. Leo and his wife, Gerri, are proud to have had all their children graduate from Bishop Luers High School and now watch their grandchildren attend Luers. Leo serves also as a member of the Development Committee and School Board. Leo Stronzcek epitomizes “LUERS SPIRIT”.
Gary Wasson is in his twelfth year as a Luers volunteer. He has been a familiar face at the scorer’s table during the volleyball and basketball seasons. He has been at the microphone for the baseball and soccer teams, and in the press box on Friday nights during football season. Gary and his wife, Kay, are proud to have had their three children graduate from Bishop Luers High School.
Jack Zern, the “voice of the Knights”, began his duties behind the microphone way back in the 1980s. Jack first started as the voice for Luers volleyball and then began announcing boys and girls basketball. Jack and his wife, Joyce, are proud to have had their four children graduate from Bishop Luers High School.
Bishop Luers High School is fortunate to have the commitment and continued dedication of these fine individuals. By their example, we are all challenged to give of ourselves unselfishly to Bishop Luers High School. Because of these volunteers and many others, Bishop Luers High School is proud to celebrate fifty years of quality Catholic education.
