1,000 Wins: Our Great Futures Spring Luncheon

Comments 0

It was enough just to hear all the great data.

How the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area has grown from three clubs to 26 in the past 15 years. How they’ve partnered with Austin ISD, Del Valle ISD, HACA and Southwest Key Programs. How they serve 12,000 kids a year and how 100 percent of their members graduate to the next academic level.

Yet for fans of Longhorns women sports, the best came last.

Always expansive emcee Brian Jones interviewed Jody ConradtKaren Aston and Chris Plonsky, all who contributed to the University of Texas women’s basketball team’s 1,000 wins.

I could have listened for hours, but one bit of data stuck in my brain: 99 percent of Coach Conradt’s students graduated.

Also astounding!
