Mark Brown

Mark Brown made a quick stop in Columbus after graduating college from UNK and accepted a teaching and coaching job in Columbus.  That quick stop turned into 12 blessed years and still a lifetime to go.  Mark’s professional career most significantly included time as a secondary educator and administrator for Columbus Public Schools prior to stepping down due to an unexpected health outcome.  Mark currently coaches high school football, and previously was a high school golf coach, and former president of the Nebraska School Interscholastic Athletic Administration Association.  Mark is committed to  staying involved in a variety of community happenings, most of which center around youth.  Mark notes “my passion is in education, developing our youth through  mental greatness and a selfless attitude.  I truly can’t think of anything requiring more mental toughness and selflessness than enduring a childhood illness.”  His family, wife Amy and two sons Bryce (10), Ryker (5) hold Sammy’s Superheroes near and dear.  “Not only have we grown to know and love many of the family’s enduring their childhood cancer journey, but through our family’s journey we appreciate the prompt need for research.  Knowing that only 4% of government cancer funding goes to study pediatric cancer is unacceptable.  These kids deserve more than 4.”
