Continuing our Fierce Female Friday Features during the month of March, we spent time today highlighting the 6 ft Guard coming out of Wichita North High School and the First Ever Female Harlem Globetrotter, Wichita Native Lynette Woodard.
Learning about Lynette Woodard’s legacy on the hardwood was such a treat. Her career flourished in college for the Jayhawks at KU and she continued to play professionally both overseas and in the WNBA.
Lynette has many accolades, from State Champion to All American to Gold Medalist and beyond but something I find incredibly valuable is the passion she brings for coaching and ensuring her players are good citizens who contribute to their community.
Many people know of her success of the court and of course as a Coach, but I was blown away when I learned while she was playing professionally in Japan Lynette earned her Stock Broker License and spent time working at the New York Stock Exchange before settling in to her role as a Coach.
Lynette certainly represents what is it is to be a Fierce Female and we salute her character, success and ambition to mentor and impact those around her.
