Yukon’s Nicole Flow: Mom of the Month – Presented by INTEGRIS Brian Thatcher, MD – IFC Yukon – Family Medicine
By Travis Sloat
Nicole Flow has two very good reasons to stay involved at Yukon High School: her two sons, senior Kobe, and Gabe, who graduated in 2019.
“I have tried to stay involved with the boys’ school since they started Pre-K,” Flow said. “Volunteering as homeroom mom and Helping Hands throughout the early school years, and then volunteering for booster club organizations during the upper grade levels. In the earlier school years, I enjoyed being able to volunteer to help with some non-classroom tasks that the boys’ teachers were faced with on a daily basis.”
Then, Flow said, the boys grew up and started participating in school sports.
“The need for volunteers in the booster clubs became evident, as these organizations are run primarily by volunteers,” she said. “I really do believe that volunteers in the system can act as a lifeline for our schools.”
Being a “sports family” means that Flow spends most of her time enjoying the sport of the season, she said.
“Kobe, my youngest, plays baseball, so during the spring and summer months I can be found at the ballpark most weekends,” she said. “My oldest Gabe is at OSU so of course this past fall I spent most weekends enjoying OSU football.”
As the treasurer of the booster club, Flow said she manages funds raised by donations, helps plan and carry out fundraisers, and is planning the Project Graduation event. In her free time, she enjoys running, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
