John Lutchko, Freshwater Advocate

You’ll find a great story on our own John Lutchko in today’s Record Eagle:

“John Lutchko always knew his career would be centered on water.

He grew up across from Grand Traverse Bay and spent as much time on Lake Leelanau as possible, visiting his grandparents’ cottage in the summer. Lutchko wanted to take his education further after graduating from Northwestern Michigan College’s freshwater studies program — and Western Michigan University offered him the solution.”

Grew up in Petoskey, so perhaps one of the few people in Leland who headed south to end up “Up North”. Graduated from U of M. Taught in Scotland for 10 years, came back to Leland in 1989 and taught English for 25 years at Leland Public School. Still teach part time for NMC. My lovely wife is named Marjory – three grown kids (two living locally) and three grandkids. We live on N. Lake Leelanau with access to both lakes Michigan and Leelanau Life is good!

  1. We’re lucky to have John contributing to our work on Lake Leelanau!! He is a great asset for exploring the ever-more complicated dynamics of our lake.

  2. What a coup for John … and for the Lake Association to have recruited him. Thanks to Wayne!

    I didn’t notice any mention of John’s work for the Lake Association, though. 🙁

    And finally … kudos to Mark Smith! This is a great website! Beautiful, and so well maintained. That, I always found was the hardest thing.
