Shad Loch, Class of 2000

Shad Loch, Bay Port Class of 2000, is a coach, outdoorsman, and founder of a non-profit organization. Shad is the agency owner of Bayland Insurance Group, and moved his office to Suamico in 2023 to be closer to his home and clients.

Shad has been a Bay Port youth wrestling coach for eight years. After a few years of recruiting, last year was the first year of having a girls-only wrestling group. In his free time, Shad also coaches softball.

As the founder and president of the non-profit organization Take’Em Outdoors, kids with life-threatening illnesses and combat wounded veterans are given the opportunity to spend time outside. Shad plans the events, registers participants, runs trips, and coordinates fundraisers. The organization has no paid administrators, with 100% of donations going to support the mission.

Shad was the first person in his family to attend and graduate from college. “While I was not always the best student, I tried hard and got extra help when needed,” said Shad. “Without all of my great teachers, coaches, and the Howard-Suamico community, I doubt I would be as successful.”
