Names: Tom, Jay and Rick
Hometown:Lorain, OH
What you do to give back?
Tom, Jay and Rick are a part of the Lorain High School production team for all of the Titans home football games.  Collectively, the three combine for over 30 years of service to the Lorain High School event production and plan on continuing their commitment for years to come.  Tom and Jay are both retired school teachers and have spent the most time with the Titans, while Rick is the finance manager at Liberty Ford Lincoln in Vermillion.  From humble beginnings, the production team started almost 15 years ago with 3 people and 1 camera.  Today, the team consists of 4 volunteers and 15 students who all cover the games with a variety of equipment, and is now a class at Lorain High School.  From seeing the programs growth, to building relationships with the students in the area, and witnessing how this program has guided students onward towards a production based future, Jay, Tom and Rick feel that their time and work is making a difference!
