The children at Jefferson Middle School in Columbia, Mississippi received a special treat Wednesday. Two-time gold medalist Ruthie Bolton visit the school to speak to and help encourage the kids to accomplish the best in life.
Bolton, a native of McClain, won three SEC championships as a part of the Auburn womens' basketball team before being drafted by the Sacramento Monarchs of the WNBA. She went on to win two Olympic gold medals as an integral part of the USA Women's Basketball Team, along with scoring over 2,000 points in the WNBA and having her jersey retired by the Monarchs. However, even after such success, Bolton says her heart is in helping others. "I feel like my journey happened the way it did because I'm supposed to give back. Sharing my story and what I've had to go through, I feel like, is a part of who I am."
Bolton, who is a member of the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame and has also been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, added that she hopes she can help out at least one or two among the crowd. "God has given us the ability to play, not just for ourselves, but the ability to influence and empower young people. If I could get one or two of these kids to really believe that they might be something, I feel like I've done my job."
