Nick Ackerman joined the Pine River-Backus school's teaching staff the fall of 2022.
We are part of The Trust Project.

Fifth and sixth grade math teacher

I grew up right here at PR-B and graduated in 2018. I went to college at the University of Wisconsin-Superior and graduated last December.

In my free time I enjoy golfing, working out, camping and spending time with my family.


I'm excited to join the PR-B team because I loved my time here as a student and will now have a chance to provide that same experience to PR-B students. I also would be lying if I said I wasn't excited to work with my brother, sister and mom.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
