On Monday evening the Elkhorn Area School District Community lost an incredible man in a tragic accident. Randi Wulf was an incredible person, husband, father, teacher, coach, and friend. He was a genuine outstanding individual. Humble, honest, caring, and sincere. He exemplified the greatest characteristics you would want to see in a person. Mr. Wulf was a teacher and coach in Elkhorn for 29 years. He loved his students and recognized the benefits co-curriculars had in developing important connections and relationships with them. As such, Mr. Wulf’s family has requested to establish a memorial fund (bit.ly/48GRZYw) in his name to benefit the Elkhorn All-Sports Booster Club. Donations made at bit.ly/48GRZYw will go to the All-Sports Booster Club in Coach Wulf’s name to carry on the mission and passion that Randi had and assist with providing access and opportunities to the students of Elkhorn Area School District.
