Pat Summitt Receives Medal of Freedom

What a great honor for Pat Summitt yesterday at the White House!

President Barack Obama presented the Medal of Freedom to more than a dozen political and cultural greats yesterday, including former Tennessee Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt.

Obama added that Summitt, who led Tennessee women’s basketball team to more NCAA Final Four appearances than any other team, had helped pave the way for his two daughters, “who are tall and gifted.”

The Medal of Freedom is presented to people who have made meritorious contributions to the national interests of the United States, to world peace or to other significant endeavors.
