Hats off gentlemen and hats on ladies.

In celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day, Winston-Salem State University’s Athletics Department held the Third Annual She’s Got It Covered – A Classy Hat Affair on Saturday, Feb. 18

The event is a celebration designed to raise funds and increase awareness of women in sports. Attendees were encouraged to wear their most fabulous hat.

During this event, a panel gave their testimony on how scholarships aided them. Panelists were: Alfreeda Goff, longtime athletics administrator; Porsche Jones, president and founder of BOND and a WSSU alumna; DeLores “Dee” Todd, women’s athletics pioneer and WSSU alumna; Vanity Oakes, a 2014 WSSU graduate; and WSSU Athletics Director Tonia Walker.

Also at the event, Dr. Carolyn Anderson, a longtime supporter of WSSU and WSSU athletics, was presented with the Clara B. Gaines Meritorious Service Award.

All proceeds from the event support WSSU’s women’s athletic teams: tennis, volleyball, basketball, softball, cross country and track.

The event, held at the Grand Pavilion Ballroom of the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Winston-Salem, has been nominated for a NCAA Division II 2017 Award of Excellence. This is one of two Scholarship Month fundraisers held annually to support WSSU athletics. Earl “The Pearl” Monroe headlined Bond. Score. Win!, a fundraiser for male student athletes, on Feb. 4.
