Please join Higher Things in wishing farewell to Stan Lemon and Jon Kohlmeier, and welcoming Bob Myers.
Stan Lemon became involved with Higher Things around 2005, and spent more than 10 years in an official capacity developing technology for the organization. He most recently served as Technology Executive for Higher Things, before being elected to the Higher Things Board of Directors earlier this year. Stan coded the first Higher Things database, managed the Higher Things website for years, and created the Higher Things mobile conference app that was used to provide a daily schedule and more at the 2016 Bread of Life youth conferences. Thank you, Stan, for your service!
Jon Kohlmeier served as a College Conference Volunteer before becoming the Higher Things webmaster and social media manager in 2008. Jon co-hosted Higher Things Radio for many years, edited countless Higher Things video shorts, and used his photography talents at Higher Things conferences. Jon was promoted to Technology Executive this year upon Stan Lemon's departure, and has now left the organization to pursue other opportunities. Thank you, Jon, for your service!
The Higher Things Board of Directors has selected Bob Myers to fill the layman opening left by Stan Lemon. Bob is retired from the US Navy, an active member at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Pensacola, FL, and has driven the Jesi truck across the country to Higher Things conferences the past couple years.
Higher Things plans to fill the interim Technology gaps with an IT manager, webmaster, and social media manager.
Stan, Jon, and Bob—Your dedication to Higher Things and its mission of assisting parents, congregations, and pastors in promoting a distinctly Lutheran identity among youth and young adults is so appreciated. Dare to be Lutheran!
