normNorman Lohman, Dean of Students
Norm Lohman is a quintessential life-long-learner. Ambitious to exceed his parent’s high school education, Norm set himself on a determined path for higher education. Nearly 20 years after attaining an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration from Northampton Community College, and Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Business Administration from DeSales University as a single father, Mr. Lohman left the corporate arena to pursue a more meaningful career in teaching. His personal goal was to lead by example and demonstrate to his sons that a strong work ethic and vocational altruistic service to others will result in, and perpetuate, elevated success personally, professionally, and generationally. He imparts that ideology and experience to his students as well. Motivated by his passion for connecting with and affecting young people… having coached youth sports for 15 years prior, Norm approached the challenge with a compelling focus on attaining and exceeding the requirements put forth by the State of Pennsylvania to become a certified teacher and earn his Master’s of Science in Education. His first teaching experience was as a Long-Term Substitute 5th Grade teacher at Lehigh Valley Academy Charter School after which he taught Applied Math at the Career Institute of Technology (CIT). Norm had been a Business Ed Teacher at William Allen High School for 15 years when he decided to support teachers and students more comprehensively by earning a Principal Certification. Norm is currently serving his second year as a Dean of Students and will pursue a role as an Assistant Principal in the future. Norm is married with 3 sons and a grandson and continues to volunteer as a youth sports coach, play drums, and preserve family culinary traditions.
