Sara Officer, a trailblazer in women's athletics at Pacific Lutheran University for more than 30 years, is the subject of a video produced by student-athlete Allie Hamilton and submitted to the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA) in commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of Title IX.
NACWAA asked athletics departments, conference offices and organizations across the nation to nominate and celebrate a trailblazer who has made significant contributions in the area of gender equity.
NACWAA has received videos from 25 schools or conferences. The video with the most views (views=votes) on the NACWAA YouTube Channel during the designated two-week viewing period (April 9-23, 2012) will win a $9,000 gift from the NACWAA Foundation Fund in support of its women's athletics programs and/or female staff professional development.
Hamilton's video can be viewed by clicking here.
Views equal votes, so get the word out to your friends and encourage them to view the video and at the same time help support Pacific Lutheran athletics.
