Montgomery Catholic was pleased to welcome Mr. Lutzenkirchen to speak to the Senior athletes, his message was inspiring and memorable.  As he remembered his son and the positive impact he had on others through service, he reminded the Seniors the importance of making good choices, wearing a seat belt and not drinking and driving. The audience was moved by his son’s story and his openness in sharing how his family is dealing with his loss.
