Westminster symposium to focus on athletics

The eighth annual Westminster College Symposium will focus on the role of sports in culture and international relations.

Speakers for “Global Sport: A Common Language in a Diverse World?” — scheduled for Sept. 17-18 — include former professional baseball player Roberto Clemente Jr., Tori Murden McClure — the first woman and American to row solo across the Atlantic — and political sports writer Dave Zirin.

Leaders of breakout sessions also will include Westminster alumna and vice president of finance at ESPN International Mary Ellen Ladieu, former St. Louis Cardinal and World Series champion Charlie James and Olympic shot put medalists Christian and Terri Cantwell.

“I think this is going to be one of the most awesome symposiums we’ve ever had,” said Rob Crouse, Westminster’s director of media and public relations. “The speakers are all great — there are just some wonderfully interesting people.”
