Lakeside Lutheran 2016 grad is news director in Wausau

On Saturday, Dec. 17, Matthew Werre, 2016 graduate of Lakeside Lutheran, directed the 10 p.m. show on his own for WSAW/WZAW in Wausau, Wis. “As director, he’s responsible for setting up and running our 30-minute live news programs,” says Operations Manager Chris Johnson. “He sets up all the camera shots, mic, videos, interviews. When you watch the news, he’s the person running the show.”

This is quite the accomplishment for an 18-year-old from Sun Prairie, who started as a master control operator, running shows and commercials. “He quickly demonstrated he was a faster learner and well-organized communicator, so I moved him to directing our news broadcasts,” says Johnson, a 1993 graduate of LLHS who got his own start by producing videos for Lakeside including Cross Country and Basketball highlight videos.

“I’m not sure, but I think he’s the youngest director ever at WSAW—and it’s rare for someone his age to have this responsibility even in a smaller market like Wausau. I have no doubt Matthew’s Christian education at Lakeside has contributed to success at WSAW. His experience with video production was a major plus, but his Christian work ethic, communication skills, and hard working attitude also played a huge role,” said Johnson. “I was absolutely thrilled to be able to hire a Lakeside graduate. I hope to hire more.”

Werre, son of Pastor Luke and Jennifer Werre of Sun Prairie, will be directing the 6 pm & 10 pm Saturday newscasts and 5:30 and 10 p.m. Sunday newscasts—and others as needed.These are streamed live on www.wsaw.com, under the “What’s On” tab.

Principal’s Pen: Comfort Amid Discord

Principal's MessageToday, America is disunited. The uncooperative spirit among our people has cultivated national dysfunctionality and strife.

God warns that in the final days “people will be lovers of themselves….boastful, proud…ungrateful, unholy” (2 Timothy 3:2). Our Savior also alerts us, “There will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equaled again” (Matthew 24:21).

It’s unsettling, but it’s the reality of life.

In the midst of discord and disunity come God’s comforting assurances. His writers warn us of the worst. But, they also encourage us to trust his promises.

2 Peter 3:18First, God encourages us to live holy lives. “Be on your guard so that you may not be carried away….Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:17-18). By faith, we serve God and our fellowmen. We glorify him when we demonstrate Christlike love for others.

Secondly, he encourages us to grow spiritually stronger. Good works are not a Means of Grace. Rather, they come from saving faith. They are spiritual exercise to strengthen us. Just as weightlifters train their muscles, exercising our faith through godly living trains us to “walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us” (Ephesians 5:2).

It is unlikely that our nation will easily overcome its current societal disarray.

Thank God for his comforting Word that guides us in these trying times. By faith, we serve him and others following Christ’s example of humility, love, and service.
