Gold Medalist and two-time Olympian LaTasha Colander-Clark will still give the keynote address for the brunch, along with salutations from WSSU Chancellor Elwood L. Robinson, WSSU Director of Athletics Tonia Walker, CIAA Commissioner Jacquie McWilliams and Zipporah Foster, a member for the historic 2015 CIAA Championship Volleyball team.

The She’s Got it Covered, Classy Hat Affair is a fun-filled celebration designed to raise funds and awareness to improve equity and access for girls and women in sports. The event will highlight the importance of female participation in athletics: female student-athletes learn about leadership, teamwork, and loyalty.

Young female student-athletes are shown to have higher levels of confidence and self-esteem. Participating in sports prepares young women for competition in the workplace – in fact, 80 percent of women executives at Fortune 500 companies played sports.

All proceeds from the brunch will go toward scholarships for the female student-athletes who participate in the women’s sports offered at WSSU including basketball, cross country, cheerleading, softball, tennis, track and volleyball which will provide our female student-athletes with scholarship support to achieve their goals both on and off the field.

WSSU students arrive on campus with everything it takes to succeed – intellect, commitment, and drive, yet, the lack of sufficient financial aid oftentimes stands in the way of graduation. Without private support for scholarships, it would be nearly impossible for most students to achieve their ultimate goal to graduate., WSSU officials say.
