Calling All Pre-1992 Female Letter Winners
Alumnae to receive classic snap-front letter jackets.
As a setter on Mizzou’s volleyball team from 1982 to 1985, Sandi Strother, BJ ’86, had a great student-athlete experience. But she remembers feeling a little disappointed when she got her varsity letter jacket. Strother, executive director of the Veterinary Cancer Society and a Columbia resident, likes the lined windbreaker that female athletes received then. But she had her heart set on the classic snap-front jacket of wool and leather, which women started receiving in 1992. To make it right, the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has joined with Varsity M, an affinity group of Mizzou Alumni Association members who are varsity letter winners. At Homecoming 2015, the groups will present women who earned their first varsity letters before 1992 with the classic jackets. Women who may qualify should contact the Tiger Scholarship Fund Office at 573–882-0704 or visit tinyurl.com/letterjackets.
