ZachBrewerMr. Zach Brewer, received the Rocky Mountain District, Lutheran Church Missouri Synod’s Administrator of the Year Award. Presented at the Annual Lutheran School Conference held each October for Lutheran Schools in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico each year, Brewer was a little surprised and accepted the Award with grace and humility.

The District’s School Committee selected Mr. Brewer and the Award was presented by Mr. Paul Albers who is an Executive for the District’s schools and congregations. Albers mentioned Brewer’s ability to balance leadership and encouragement; confidence and humility; mercy and willingness to have the tough conversations.

Mr. Brewer shared his love for Zion school families and the congregation. He told the audience that he could never accomplish all that he does without his excellent teaching staff.

Congratulations Mr. Brewer!
