Panel discussion with author Andrew Maraniss and pioneering women athletes Juliene Simpson and Carolyn Bush Roddy

March 21, 2023 at 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

In celebration of Women’s History Month, SC4’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is sponsoring a panel discussion with New York Times best-selling author Andrew Maraniss at noon Tuesday, March 21, in SC4’s Fine Arts Theatre.

The discussion will highlight his latest book, “Inaugural Ballers,” an inspirational true story of the first U.S. Women’s Olympic Basketball team and their unlikely rise to the top.

Present for the panel discussion will be Juliene Simpson, Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame member and Team USA co-captain, and Carolyn Bush Roddy, a two-time NJCAA All-American, Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame member and Team USA member prior to the Olympics.

This event will pay tribute to pioneering women athletes and present-day gamechangers during Women’s History Month as SC4 hosts the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Women’s Basketball National Championship March 21 to 25. Simpson and Bush Roddy also will help open the tournament with a ceremonial tip-off before the first game.

The panel discussion is free and open to the public. Register to attend the event by filling out the event registration form or email
