LEELANAU TOWNSHIP COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
ANNOUNCES NEW YOUTH ADVISORY COUNCIL ADVISORY

NORTHPORT, Michigan - The Leelanau Township Community Foundation is excited to announce the appointment of Elizabeth Kilcherman as our new Youth Advisory Council (YAC) advisor.

Elizabeth Kilcherman was born and raised in Leelanau County. She graduated from Sutton’s Bay Public School, then continued her education at the University of Michigan in elementary education. Elizabeth started teaching at Northport Public Schools in 2010, and has held a range of positions from K-5 Physical Education to her current fourth grade classroom. She has also coached various athletic teams in the county for over eight years. Elizabeth currently lives in Northport with her husband and dog, and loves everything the community has to offer. She will be replacing former YAC advisor Jennifer Walter.

YAC consists of a group of local high school students from Northport Public Schools who learn the basics of philanthropy through making decisions on grant applications for the Foundation’s Youth Endowment Fund. In 2017, YAC was able to give additional support to the Northport Youth Sailing School, the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum, the National Arts Honors Society, the Leelanau Christian Neighbor’s baby pantry, and more!
