News

LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) It all came down to one game on the big stage.

The Chiefs versus the Buccaneers battling it out for the chance to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.

We introduced to you to Cithy Charles, a frontline hero from Ochsner Lafayette General, chosen to represent the Ochsner family in Raymond James Stadium.

“I think the community embraced it, followed protocol with mask wearing. There was a sense of ‘we can get back to some of the things we have not been able to do’,” adds Charles.

In a stadium full of stars, she says she embraced the opportunity given to her, to sit alongside other heroes, showing unity, that together we can get through anything.

Charles continues, “It brings us together. We are able to think about other things besides the pandemic.”

Charles adds as someone who continues her battle against the COVID-19 pandemic on the frontlines, she says it was an honor to witness the Super Bowl use their platform to educate those of the battle our country still faces.

“Flyers were given out for people to be tested if needed. That was a great thing to see,” adds Charles.
