Before Northwestern's drubbing of Barron on Friday, Sept. 10, seniors from the football and cheerleading teams got to recognize staff members who have made an impact on their time as Tigers.

Twenty seniors honored 15 staff members before the game. The seniors were announced with their chosen staff member and presented them with an engraved plaque with the students' words of thanks.
