The Penn State All-Sports Museum Celebrates Women’s History Month

The Penn State All-Sports Museum will celebrate Women’s History Month with a series of events over the next two weeks, including two guest speakers and a film viewing. All events are free and will be held in the Clemen’s Family Theater in the Museum. There will also be free food at all three events!

Here’s the schedule:

  • March 9 at 1 p.m. and March 10 at 2 p.m. — The museum will show the film The Mighty Macs, directed and produced by basketball coach Patrick Chambers’ brother Tim Chambers.

  • March 19 at 7 p.m. — 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist Natalie Dell will speak. Dell will tell her story about going from the Penn State club rowing team to an Olympic medalist, and everything in between.
