Valedictory Q&A Touches Base With Outgoing LL Chairman


"6 Innings With Davie Jane Gilmour"6 Innings With Davie Jane Gilmour,” marking the Penn College president’s final year as chairman of the Little League International Board of Directors, shares myth-busting insight and eye-opening introspection – including her favorite experience and funniest moment – from a five-year term that ends in November. Among her observations is that participation in sports takes scholar-athletes well beyond the playing fields to boundless success in their chosen fields. “Why? Because they learn how to manage their time, they learn how to communicate and function as a team,” Gilmour says. “When they leave Penn College or any other educational institution, they’re going to be the people employers are looking for because they can do more than a task. They can be a bigger contributor to the whole.”
