February 7 marks the 38th annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD). NGWSD began in 1987 as a special day to recognize women’s sports and unite premier organizations and elite female athletes to bring national attention to the promise of girls and women in sports professions.
“This celebration inspires girls and women to play and be active, to realize their full power,” according to NGWSD. “The confidence, strength and character gained through sports participation are the very tools girls and women need to become strong leaders in sports and life.”
Clemson alumni continue to shine professionally in all aspects of athletics, from the front office to the sidelines, behind the scenes and in front of the camera; at American sports institutions, including NASCAR, the NFL, CBS Sports and many more. Some recent Clemson graduates took the time to share their career experiences and success stories in the hopes that they can inspire the next generation of Clemson women in sports.
