New Winston Museum presents: "Women for the Win: Sports, Gender, and Title IX Legislation in Winston-Salem." This is the second in our four-part Salon Series: "Winston-Salem at Play: Sports and Society in the Camel City." For this program, we'll hear from local women athletes and coaches with deep roots in Winston-Salem and in the field. What obstacles did women entering the world of sports face over the past several decades? What has changed? The speakers will share their personal experiences with Title IX and breaking down barriers to sports and athletics. We present this series in partnership with the National Sports Media Association (NSMA). And we are pleased to present this program in partnership with Salem Academy and College. Salem College President Sandra J. Doran will be on hand to make opening remarks.
Our panelists for the program include: Dianne Dailey, the legendary women's golf coach, and also a Salem College graduate, who made her career leading the women's golf program at Wake Forest University for three decades; and LaTaya Hilliard-Gray, Head Softball Coach at Winston-Salem State University for the past 17 years, where she is also Senior Woman Administrator, and Deputy Title IX Liaison for Athletics. Additionally, Salem College Athletics Director, Patricia Hughes, a native of Ireland and a longtime soccer coach, will help open the program and share some of her experiences as a woman in sports. This program will be moderated by Dave Goren, longtime local sports broadcaster and director of the NSMA.
This program will be in Salem College's Huber Theater, which is located in the new Student Center, right in the middle of the campus. After the panel discussion, we're hosting a reception with hors d'oeuvres, wine, and beer in the new Salem Academy and College Athletics Hall of Fame.
Parking is available at the rear of campus, near the tennis courts, or in the Fine Arts Center parking lot.
