Haverford High School honored Hannah Hermansen and Lily Walker at a “Fords Fight For Life” Green Out event for cancer on Friday, October 18.   Students gathered in the Juenger Gymnasium in a brief pep rally during homeroom to commemorate Walker, a freshman, and Hermansen, a junior.  Walker was diagnosed on St. Patrick’s Day in 2018, and Hermansen was diagnosed this past September. 

The rally was filmed by the Fox 29 crew to feature on a football game segment that night, named “Fords Fight for Life”.  Handmade posters and flowers were presented to the pair as cameras captured the touching moment when they hugged in the center of the gym.  Haverford’s Varsity cheerleaders performed a few routines, during which freshman Ashlee Hoover was thrown into the air, “Go Fords” flags were waved, and students in the stands cheered with exuberance.  The marching band added to the lively atmosphere with performances of the Captain America theme song, Fight song, Ants Marching, and Cadence
