If any alumni from the late 80s happen to stop in during late April, they will encounter one-time DLS Math and Science teacher David Nowinski.
Nowinski, who is filling in for Science teacher Nina Jacks, taught at DLS from 1989-1991, before going to Fraser High School (his alma mater)..He retired in November 2022, having taught mostly Chemistry and Physics. While at Fraser, he coached the swim team, a position he held for 36 years.
Nowinski said he enjoyed coming back to De La Salle, and says, “It is refreshing to see how the school has maintained its level of excellence.”
A graduate of Wayne State University with a bachelor’s and master’s in Biology, and a master’s in teaching, Nowinski and his wife Lisa, parents of four children), recently became grandparents for the first time. The same weekend his grandchild was entering the world, the couple was also traveling to the NCAA swimming tournament in Indianapolis, IN. Their youngest son, a swimmer at Wayne State University, was racing, and earned All-American honors in two relays as well as Academic All-American status.
Both Nowinski and his wife, a small animal veterinarian, live in New Haven, MI, and look forward to spending time with their new grandchild.
