Sarah, Chet, Christian and Carolyn are the officers of the Lakeview High School National Honor Society in Battle Creek, Mich., but they are also huge fans of the Green Bay Packers, and specifically Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings.
The four NHS student officers contacted me here this week at Lombardiave.com because they wanted to know how to get in touch with Jennings, who is an alumnus of Western Michigan University, located not far from the Battle Creek High School.
With my connection to Sarah Quick, the assistant public relations director for the Packers, I was able to give the four students a direct line to the Packers and Jennings. Ms. Quick gave me her address so the students could send a letter to invite Jennings to their spring induction ceremony as the guest speaker.
While the students have sent their invitation, there’s no word yet on whether Jennings has received it or accepted their offer.
In the meantime, the four of them gathered together for a photograph this week to show their support of the Packers, saying they would continue to cheer for the Packers throughout the NFC Playoffs. They also said they and their advisor, Margaret Lincoln, would keep us up-to-date on whether Jennings accepts their offer.
Our guess is that Jennings is a little bit occupied right now and hope he continues to be occupied right up through this year’s Super Bowl.
