In today’s Untold Story of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack visits the Stearns History Museum for their monthly Breakfast Club. This time, the presentation featured Dr. Lori Ulferts, SCSU Professor and former Women’s Basketball coach, and Carol Howe-Veenstra, former Director of Athletics at the College of St. Benedict and volleyball coach.
Title IX as a law is 47 years old this June, and was passed as a guarantee of equal treatment based upon sex. These two women have been pioneers in this area and were able to speak from the perspectives of being girls in sports before Title IX as well as being academic sports professionals following its passage.
