ABSEGAMI SPORTS TEAMS MODEL PHILADELPHIA EAGLES COACH DOUG PEDERSON; GIVES ICE CREAM TO THE STUDENT BODY

A recent compilation video of Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was
released by the team that showed that Pederson would frequently end his team
meetings by giving the team ice cream. Many members of the team looked forward to
those little rewards on their way to a Super Bowl Championship this past year.
Fast forward to Absegami High School. On Friday, February 23rd, the Absegami
School Store, Snack Shack, media department and winter sports teams combined to
repeat that practice. Spearheaded by Absegami supervisors Steve Fortis, Joe Sabath
and Kathleen Schurtz, students watched a 25 minute video salute to the winter sports
and activities in the building which included the Doug Pederson video. The winter
sports athletes delivered ice cream sandwiches to all of the students in the building,
going from classroom to classroom to deliver a tasty treat to a grateful student body.
“In light of the tragic Florida shooting last week at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
School, we thought it imperative that we provide some relief to students who clearly
may feel heightened distress in school,” said principal Jeri-Lynn Vernon. “As the winter
sports season is coming to a close, it seemed like a good time to promote school spirit
and lighten the mood. You would be hard pressed to find people who don’t like ice
cream.”
The student body of Absegami would heartily agree!
