Wisconsin Author Tells Tales of Wisconsin Athletes at NHHS Annual Meeting
Wisconsin author Jessie Garcia gave a spirited presentation as the featured speaker at the 2017 New Holstein Historical Society Annual Meeting held Nov. 4 at the Altona. Approximately 60 attendees listened as Ms. Garcia provided historic data and anecdotes about athletes covered in her three books, "Going for Wisconsin Gold", biographies and stories of Wisconsin athletes who participated in the Olympic games; "My Life with the Green and Gold", stories gathered from 20 years as a sideline reporter during Green Packer games and as host of the Mike McCarthy Show; and "No Stone Unturned" the story of a Wisconsin Olympic athlete and his sister who struggled to conquer cancer.
The author was the first female to be named to a position as a Wisconsin TV sportscaster. She also spoke about growing up as a non-athlete and suddenly discovering that she wanted to tell the stories of those who do compete in various sports, then having to learn about sports at the same time as she, as a female, worked her way into the forefront of a previously male dominated profession.
In a short meeting prior to Ms. Garcia's address, NHHS members elected incumbent NHHS Board members Dick Griem, Jerry Hallstrom, Kay Nett, and Carol Wordell to new three year terms.
At the November NHHS monthly meeting that followed the annual meeting, Hallstrom was re-elected NHHS President, Wordell was re-elected NHHS vice president, Nett was re-elected NHHS secretary, and Griem was re-elected treasurer for 2018.
