The Cannon Cast Episode 73: Willie O’Ree Community Hero Award Finalist John Haferman of the Columbus Ice Hockey Club

This week we talked with CIHC Executive Director and Willie O’Ree Community Hero Award finalist John Haferman.

This week on The Cannon Cast, we talked with Columbus Ice Hockey Club Executive Director, John Haferman. You’ll probably remember a few weeks ago we talked to CIHC President Mike Watson, and he recommended we talk with John as well! Some of our conversation touched upon:

  • How John got started with the CIHC?
  • Diversity within the CIHC.
  • Working along side hockey Hall of Famer Willie O’Ree

And much more!

*As of Friday, July 17, John Haferman was officially nominated as one of three finalists for the Willie O’Ree Community Hero Award*

You can listen to our previous conversation with Mike to learn even more about the program here, and you can follow Columbus Ice Hockey Club on Twitter @CIHockeyClub.

Our theme music is the song “Green Eyes,” by Angela Perley and the Howlin’ Moons off of their album “Homemade Vision.” Angela’s newest album is called “4:30” and you should listen to it!
