Corrigan goes from ice girl to emcee for Peoria Rivermen
As a self-described social butterfly, Morris resident Haley Corrigan has never had much of an issue with shyness. The outgoing sophomore at Bradley University was a four-year varsity member of the MCHS Pom squad, and dancing in front of hundreds, and often thousands, of fans became second nature during her time in high school and while dancing at Mueller’s School of Dance.
However, when she received an offer to take over as the emcee of the Peoria Rivermen, an AHL affiliate of the NHL’s St. Louis Blues, being in the limelight took on new meaning. With a microphone thrust into her hand, Haley no longer had the buffer of simply being down on the field or on the ice. Instead, she became an integral part of the fan experience. And though she is far from bashful, with the Peoria Rivermen hoping to provide all-around family fun – the mission statement of most minor league sports franchises – it was hard not to be initially overcome by nerves.
