Please join us from 2:00–3:00 p.m. at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum as we bring four world-class Olympic athletes to the museum for a month-long lecture series in May 2021. This series explores the role of sports in American culture and consider how the values of discipline, determination, sportsmanship, teamwork, respect, perseverance, and doing your personal best, exemplified by the Olympians, mirror the values necessary to achieve success in everyday life.
