Pat Summitt was truly a “one of a kind,” legendary American treasure and was recognized for her accomplishments in every area of life. President Barack Obama honored her with the “Medal of Freedom.” She was the recipient of the Sports Illustrated “Sportswoman of the Year” Award and Glamour magazine’s “Woman of the Year” recognition. ESPN awarded Pat the prestigious “Arthur Ashe Courage Award.” US News and World Report named her one of the top fifty women leaders in America. Alongside her male counterpart, John Wooden, Pat received the Naismith Coach of the Century award. In 2016, Sporting News ranked the 50 All-Time Greatest American Sports Coaches (of all sports) and had Pat, not surprisingly, as the only female on the list. The White House even named her one of the “Twenty-Five Most Influential Working Mothers.” Pat was also the first US Olympian to win medals as both a player (1976) and head coach (1984). She coached the University of Tennessee for 38 years, won 8 national championships and proudly had a 100% student-athlete graduation rate. She won 1,098 games, went to 18 NCAA “Final Fours,” never missed a NCAA tournament, won 32 SEC Championships and was awarded “Coach of the Year” 15 times. When she retired, she was the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history. But clearly, hers is not just the story about a basketball coach. She wrote three best-selling books, performed countless corporate keynote speeches, and started the Pat Summitt Foundation, a nonprofit focused on fighting Alzheimer’s disease. Her life, legend, legacy and leadership lessons will continue for decades through the work of both the Pat Summitt Foundation and the Pat Summitt Leadership Group.
