Dr. Krammer to represent LEC in Broadmoor basketball game

Academics,

On Monday, March 27, 2017, coaches and special guests from local schools and organizations will gather to take on the Broadmoor Bobcats in a game of basketball in the Mentor High School gymnasium.

Broadmoor School, a part of the Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities, hosts a basketball season each year for their students which culminates with the annual “Bobcats vs. Area Coaches” charity game. The event acts as a fundraiser with donations and raffle proceeds going to benefit the school.

At this year’s game, Dr. Katie Krammer, associate professor of special education, will proudly represent Lake Erie College for the second year running. Dr. Krammer and her colleague Pam Martin, director of clinical experiences and partnerships, have a longstanding tradition of bringing LEC students to Broadmoor each semester to play the Bobcats in basketball.

In addition to her ties through the College, Dr. Krammer has a personal connection to Broadmoor. Her sons, Trey and Quinn, both have autism and have benefitted from services they’ve received through Broadmoor.

“I am thrilled to be invited to participate in such a fun evening that brings so many people from the community together to support this school and individuals with disabilities,” said Dr. Krammer. “Seeing the students enjoying themselves and getting the chance to participate in such an exciting event is just the most heartwarming experience.”

The event on March 27 will feature area mascots, high school cheerleading squads, the Wickliffe High Drum Core, a 50/50 raffle and more. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. with the game to follow at 7:00 p.m.
