  50 Stories for 50 Years of Title IX

On Tuesday, June 23 the KSHSAA introduced a campaign to recognize those who have helped blaze the trail for girls in activi­ties since or prior to the passing of Title IX in 1972.

Each Tuesday a new story will be posted and occasionally throughout the next year there will be “guest essays” written first-person by those that really lived the struggle, progress and opportunity.

We encourage you to share, post or publish.

The first two stories are posted and each story here after will be posted at this link: https://www.kshsaa.org/Public/TitleIX/ Main.cfm 

We look forward to an exciting year ahead!
