SD Native Honored During Title IX Anniversary



Bookmark and Share

A Standing Rock Sioux tribal member who advises the White House on Native American affairs is among 40 women being honored for their impact on women and sports to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Title IX.
 
Jodi Gillette has been named to the Women's Sports Foundation's 40 For 40 list. The list honors women who have made a significant impact after playing sports in high school or college during the 40 years Title IX has been enacted. Title IX is a law known mainly for mandating gender equity in high school and collegiate sports.  
 
Gillette, who played basketball at Dartmouth College, will be recognized during a ceremony in Washington on Thursday. Other honorees include soccer player Mia Hamm, figure skater Michelle Kwan and comedian Ellen DeGeneres.
