FCPS's Bud Mayo to be Inducted Into U.S. Lacrosse-Potomac Chapter Hall of Fame
Bud Mayo, assistant principal at Pimmit Hills Alternative High School, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Potomac Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse on Saturday, February 6. Pimmit Hills Alternative High is a Fairfax County public school.
Mayo was instrumental in the introduction of lacrosse in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) while serving as a history teacher at Lake Braddock Secondary School. With the support of then-principal John Alwood, lacrosse was introduced as a club sport; Mayo served as the sponsor and coach of this team—the first lacrosse team in FCPS. Fifteen years later, lacrosse became a varsity sport in FCPS.
“Bud was one of the early pioneers and founders of youth lacrosse in Fairfax County,” says Potomac Chapter president Homer Schwartz. “His club team was the beginning of lacrosse in Fairfax County, which is now huge.”
Mayo has been employed by FCPS for 40 years. He is a former president of the Potomac Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse.
