Marcia Saneholtz receives Samuel H. Smith Leadership Award


Marcia Saneholtz, who retired from WSU in September, 2007 as Senior Associate Athletic Director after 28 years in athletics administration, was recently honored by the WSU Association for Faculty Women with the 2007 Samuel H. Smith Leadership Award.

The award honors an AFW member whose leadership has advanced the role of women at WSU and/or who has demonstrated leadership in her profession at the local, state, regional, national and/or international level.

Saneholtz has achieved national distinction for the major impact she has made on intercollegiate athletics and on women in sport.

The WSU volleyball team’s home court is now called Marcia Saneholtz Court in honor of her many contributions to athletics and gender equity, and she also has a WSU women’s Varsity 8 rowing shell named in her honor. She is also the recipient of numerous other awards, including WSU Woman of Distinction in 2003.
