Sum­mitt owed our ap­pre­ci­a­tion

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

FROM: FRAN ABRAMS NORTH EAST

Ev­ery fe­male that has par­tic­i­pated in a sports pro­gram over the last 40+ years should be sad­dened by the pass­ing of Pat Sum­mitt of the Univer­sity of Ten­nessee.

With­out her vi­sion, ded­i­ca­tion and com­pas­sion, women’s sports would not be what it has be­come nor would it be pro­vid­ing fe­male ath­letes, as­pir­ing or com­mit­ted, the op­por­tu­ni­ties to pur­sue their dreams and achieve their goals.

We owe Pat and the oth­ers like her a world of grat­i­tude and ap­pre­ci­a­tion.
