Kilcherman named to foundation council

Elizabeth Kilcherman has been appointed the Leelanau Township Community Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council advisor.

She was born and raised in Leelanau County, a graduate of Suttons Bay Public School. Then she continued her education at the University of Michigan, where she studied elementary education.

Kilcherman started teaching in 2010 at Northport Public Schools, for which she has held a range of positions from K-5 physical education to her current assignment as fourth grade teacher.

She has also coached athletic teams over the past eight years.

Kilcherman lives in Northport with her husband and dog. She replaces former YAC Jennifer Walter.

YAC consists of a group of high school students from Northport Public School who learn the basics of philanthropy through making decisions on grant applications for the Foundation’s Youth Endowment Fund.
