A little history about the Football Mom Program as shared by Betty Lehn.
In spring/summer before the 1978 football season, Betty Lehn, Judie Nauman, Nedra O'Hare, and Louise Eckert founded the Football Mom concept and obtained approval to move forward. They served the summer camp program that year along with moms Garnet Cook, Carrine Thiel, Gail Fields, Ann Dziki and Mary Bielowski joining in on the program. Each year, new moms would step up to help and contribute to the Football Mom program. As you will see in the video, the Football Moms did more than serving meals to hungry football players. Their Sequoit Spirit touched many students and their families and have created memories to last throughout all the football years past and to come. And did you know this? John O'Hare, husband to Nedra, designed the "A" with the arrow through it. Paul Eckert, husband to Louise, built the original teepee that was used at games and pep rallies.
