Nancy K. Musser, Cheerleader

Nancy K. Musser was born February 19, 1954 in Bellafonte, PA, the youngest of four children to Dr. Glenn L. and Edith E. Musser. She attended the State College Area Schools in State College, PA, before moving to Alexandria in January, 1968.

In Alexandria, Nancy finished eighth grade at Minnie Howard Middle School and went on to T.C. Williams in the fall of 1968. As a freshman, Nancy made the cheerleading squad and continued to cheer for the Titans for the next four years. She was also a clarinetist in the band, an alto member of the choir, and active in the Interact Club.

After high school, Nancy attended Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, PA and majored in History. In college, she was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, Phi Alpha Theta History Honorary, and Phi Gamma Mu Social Science Honorary. In her senior year, she was the coordinator of the University’s Volunteer Program. At Susquehanna, Nancy met her future husband, William J. Cody. She graduated from Susquehanna in May, 1976.

In September, 1976, Nancy began teaching history at Middleburg High School in Middleburg, PA. She was also the cheerleading coach and advisor to the Student Council for the next five years.

Nancy married Bill in October, 1977, and gave up teaching for full time motherhood when their twins, Neil and Allison, were born in November, 1981. In 1992, Nancy returned to the work force and became a sales associate for the BonTon Corporation. She has been the Customer Service Manager at the Selinsgrove Store for the past three years.

In April, 2000, Bill passed away after a brief battle with cancer. Their children are now in college. Neil is at Penn State majoring in film and video, and Allison is at Susquehanna majoring in music performance.

“I have many fond memories of high school and of living in Northern Virginia. Being a cheerleader at T.C. is one of the best memories. Coming back to Alexandria in the wake of ‘Remember the Titans’ and seeing so many old friends again has certainly been a highlight in my life. My only regret is that Gerry Bertier, who I dated that season, did not live to see all this happen. Although it was difficult at the time to merge with our greatest rivals, the merger afforded us all the opportunity to meet new people, and broaden our understanding of others. I am blessed to have been a part of his chapter in Alexandria’s history.”
