Olympic Gold Medalist Shares Experiences with Rogers Students

Mary Whipple, Olympic gold medalist coxswain of U.S. Rowing’s women’s eight, provided some inspiration for Greg Rogers Elementary students in February. Whipple (holding medal in photo) walked with the school’s Walking, Wheeling, Running Club.  Whipple shared her gold and silver medals with students, and talked about her Olympic experiences, and preparations for the upcoming London Olympics. A segment about Whipple, including her visit to Rogers, might also soon air on NBC’s Nightly News.
