Five-time Olympian Danielle Scott-Arruda will be appearing on July 29 at D.L. Ligon Coliseum on the Midwestern State University campus.
This is part of a fund-raiser for the MSU volleyball team to help pay for its trip to Argentina.
Former Bowie player Addy Cook will be part of the Mustangs’ group going to South America.
Scott will deliver the keynote address. Tables of eight are available, or purchase a sponsorship, for $500.
Scott was a member of the United States women’s volleyball team for 19 years, and played on the college level at Long Beach State University – where she was a three-time American Volleyball Coaches Association first-team All-American.
Long Beach State won the 1993 NCAA Division I national championship.
Scott joined the U.S. women’s national team in 1994, making her international debut at the Goodwill Games. She helped her country win the FIVB World Championship one year later.
She was part of the United States’ back-to-back silver-medal winning squads – at the 2008 Beijing Games and 2012 London Games. Brazil defeated the U.S. in both of those matches. Scott was 39 years old on the ’12 team.
Today, Scott is part of USA Volleyball’s High Performance Center coaching the next generation of Olympians. She is one of only four players – male or female – to have participated in five Olympics.
Scott was inducted into the International Volleyball Hall of Fame in 2016.
