Mary’s son and daughter recently graduated from UNL but that doesn’t keep her out of the college scene! An avid Husker football and volleyball fan, Mary and her husband, Brad, enjoy attending games and tailgating with friends. When she’s not sporting Husker red on Saturdays you’re likely to find Mary at one of several Equestrian competitions watching her daughter compete.
