The Daily Brief

KU SLAM Club Pocono Raceway College Tour 

During the spring semester, the Sport Leisure and Athletic Management Club (SLAM) participated in the first ever Pocono Raceway College Tour. The College Tour was a contest between Pennsylvania universities to see who could host the best viewing party for a NASCAR Xfinity Series race. SLAM's April 8 party won the contest, beating students from East Stroudsburg, Temple and Penn State. As the winners, they enjoyed the Pocono Green 250 Xfinity Series race from a Skybox at the Raceway. Pictured are Leisure and Sports Studies students Mike Wasco, Dean May, Jon Kleiner, Tyler Wakefield and Alyssa Riker. Also pictured are Professor Kerri Cebula, adviser, Patrick Manento (LSS '12; COE graduate student), co-adviser, and Cody Moyer (COE graduate student).

THE SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

THIS MONTH IN KU HISTORY

(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

In June, 1935, the local Girl Scouts present their sponsor, Minerva Stern, with a canary named Scoutie.  Stern is known for being one of the most influential women in the history of KU.  She was born in England in 1887 and arrived in the U. S. in 1892. She was a pioneer in the advancement of women's athletic activities at Kutztown. She coached all women's sports at the school between 1928 and 1952. Upon her arrival at KU, Stern expanded interclass games for women in field hockey, basketball, baseball and tennis. She also provided the first opportunities for women in swimming and track, and headed several girls' clubs including the Hiking Club and the Girl Scouts. Stern is credited with the development of the Girls' Athletic Association (GAA), a group that awarded pins, numerals or letters to women through a complex system of points. The GAA, later renamed the Women's Athletic Association, boomed in size under Stern. In the mid-1930s, Stern developed a club for the early female superstars known as Tau Kappa. The honorary athletic sorority promoted good sportsmanship and the improvement of techniques in various athletic activities. During World War II, Stern took select Kutztown teams to nearby colleges for the first ever women's intercollegiate competition. Stern passed away shortly after her tenure at KU. Stern died Sept. 22, 1952, at the age of 65.  She was inducted into the Kutztown University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1997.
