Meet the Team
M.A.D. Week is a combination of Music, Athletics, and Drama specialty camps. We are so blessed to have amazing coaches and instructors join us for this week to help enrich our camp with talent and passion for each speciality. You can read more about each instructor below, and get excited about this year's M.A.D. Week, July 23-28!
Mr. Schorfheide has been teaching school for 23 years, teaching music and assisting with drama at Lutheran High School for the last 10 and hopefully many more to come. He graduated from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 1993 with a degree in Music Education. Mr. Schorfheide has had a wonderful time at Lutheran High School and am very excited about the new building which will include a music room and a new stage to perform on. He continues to build the music program up and continues to get the most out of these young students.
Under head coach, Katie McCulley, the Lutheran High Crusader volleyball teams have always
had a winning season. 2016 was no different. The Lady Crusader's finished 26-12 and in the Elite 8 in the IHSA State Series.
And, more importantly than the physical skills that are taught, Katie focuses on making each of the players a better person. Many of the lessons learned on the court can be applied to our daily lives - hard work, perseverance, dedication, loyalty, pushing through the
pain, rejoicing in a win and learning from a loss.
For ten years, each and every practice and game for LuHi volleyball has ended with the players
and coaches holding hands and saying a prayer of thanks. Thanks are given for being able to
play the game that we love. Thanks are given for those around us - our teammates, our family,
our friends. It is always our prayer to play for God's glory and to be an example of His love.
LuHi volleyball is more than just a win/loss record. LuHi volleyball is more than just a sport. It's
a foundation to becoming a better player and a better person.
Before Lutheran High, Katie was the assistant coach at SIU-E for 2 seasons while she was getting her MBA. She graduated from Lewis University with her undergrad, where she was a 4 year starter for the Flyers and an All American.
Hello! My name is Clayton James. I am the Assistant Varsity Soccer Coach at Springfield Lutheran High School. For the past two years, I have coached the boys and girls programs at Lutheran High. I played collegiate soccer for two years until an injury forced me to give up playing at a competitive level. Now I just play in recreational leagues with a group of friends in Springfield. I played league soccer for 16 years and then began my coaching career after college graduation. I graduated from Concordia University Chicago with a degree in Theology. I currently work for Lutheran High School as the Admissions Director. I look forward to kicking the ball around and having fun at Camp CILCA this summer! Hope to see you there!

My name is Lora Beavers and I am blessed to be a wife to Michael and a mom to Amelia (and Amelia’s dog Cooper). I work at Concordia Lutheran Church in Springfield Illinois as both the church and the school secretary, I am a community theatre actor as well the theatre director from Springfield’s Lutheran High. In 5th grade, I made my stage debut at Auburn Elementary in a production called “Shaping up Santa” and I performed throughout high school in productions such as “Noises Off” and “Twelve Angry Jurors”. At Springfield Theatre Centre, and New Salem Theatre in the Park, I had the privilege to perform in several productions such as “Little Women”, “Harvey”, “M*A*S*H”, and “Our American Cousin”. In 2013, I was asked to become the director at Lutheran High , and I have directed shows there like “Annie”, “Fiddler on the Roof”, “Leaving Iowa”, and “Bye Bye Birdie”. I feel that theatre is my gift from God which I truly enjoy sharing with the students at Lutheran High. Acting enables the actors to entertain others, but by doing that, we build character, not only a character in the show, but as a person. It develops lifelong friendships and gives us an opportunity to really get to know one another and share in each other’s lives. When a show that you have worked on for 2-3 months comes to a close, it is always bittersweet. You come together as strangers, you build a show through lots of hard work and then you leave feeling like a family. And in my opinion, there is no greater gift from God than the one of family; your own family, the little families you create such as your theatre family and of course, most importantly, a member of HIS FAMILY!
