On our summer trip two summers ago, we went to Marshall and toured the campus and my husband set up a surprise meeting with the Athletic Director, said Cade. “It was an amazing experience!”

“This year, I attended the UTSA vs. Marshall game here in San Antonio. While at the game, my husband and I went down to the field before the game started to get close to the players.  A reporter began speaking with us. When I told him my name he immediately knew who I was, sharing that the Marshall Athletic Director told my story all the time. He set up an interview at halftime, and we visited about my love for Marshall and how I marry that with my love for AHHS Mules and our Journalism program,” shared Cade. “It is literally one of the coolest things to happen to me ever!” 

As excited, as she was to attend the event and be interviewed, she was just thrilled to receive a surprise in the mail in early January. It was a copy of the latest, Thundering Herd magazine, the official magazine of Marshall University Athletics.  As she browsed the pages of the publication, she was surprised to see a feature story focused on her! In the story, “Fan From Afar,” Thundering Herd staff shared Cade’s story and how she used the Marshall story to educate her Mules.
