KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - The Kansas City Chiefs announced plans to honor the legacy of Norma Hunt.

The organization said players will wear an “NKH” commemorative patch on their jerseys featuring Norma’s initials. The patch features her initials in gold at the center of a football. The patch will be on the right side of the jersey. Patches honoring Lamar Hunt and the American Football League are on the left side.

The Chiefs will also honor Hunt’s life during a ceremony at halftime of Thursday night’s NFL game against the Detroit Lions at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

Hunt passed away on June 4, 2023.

In addition to the ceremony, the Chiefs announced the Norma Hunt Super Bowl Champion of Education program.

The program will select one female educator to attend the Super Bowl every year going forward in Hunt’s honor. It will also recognize the commitment to education and the classroom of the selected teacher.

Hunt began her career at a teacher in Texas, before marrying the late Chiefs owner. The Kansas City Chiefs say the program honors Hunt’s passion for education and her lifelong love of football.
