Athletes Inspiring Athletes: Annual leadership conference presenters showcase the impact
that participating in sports had on their lives, education and careers
NEWTON, MA, June 12, 2012 – Working just as hard in the classroom as you do on the field, court, track or in the pool is a recipe for success, according to the all-star roster of speakers at this year’s 2nd Annual Dream Big! Leadership Conference.
Presented last week by Dream Big! and hosted at Conte Forum by Boston College Department of Athletics, more than 135 girls from a dozen schools in Greater Boston and Lawrence joined 20 of their teachers and coaches to hear directly from former Olympic, professional, collegiate and high school female athletes about how sports – and the friends and mentors they met through sports – paved the way for tremendous personal and professional success later in life.
