History / Head Coach - Men's Basketball

Favorite Quote: “If you learn to use it right, adversity will buy you a ticket to a place you could not have gone any other way.” – Tony Bennett, University of Virginia Men’s Basketball Coach


Growing up in the two cities of Peoria, IL and St. Petersburg, Florida, Mr. Lacher joined the PND family as an educator nine years ago and has sixteen years of experience teaching. His favorite parts about PND are the students and faculty, and he constantly works toward his goal to try and positively impact young people. Teaching at PND has helped him see the massive impact that a strong faith-life can have on everything. When not teaching in sophomore hall or coaching in the gym, Mr. Lacher enjoys being with his family and L-O-V-E-S the St. Louis Cardinals!
