The 1950’s

Roland Lehker

Roland (Ron) Lehker has been involved with YFU since its founding in 1951. As a principal in Ann Arbor, MI, he welcomed the first group of German students into his school after WWII. He was also a chaperone in 1955 on YFU’s maiden trip to Germany. Ron helped make YFU founder Rachel Andresen’s dream a reality. 

I just knew from the moment I met Rachel she was going to have a huge impact on the world.
