Norm and Carol Lansverk are this year’s “booster” honorees. These Bishop Moore parents were hands-on supporters of Hornets sports programs for 16 years from the late 60’s to the mid 80’s — as tireless volunteers working concessions. Norm, for many years, served as Athletic Association president and volunteer basketball coach.
