2013-2014 Tennessee Blue Book to Honor Pat Summitt
(Published: January 8, 2014)

In her 38 years coaching the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers basketball team, Pat Summitt received hundreds of honors. Her teams won more than 1,000 games, 32 Southeastern Conference championships and eight national championships. Her players who completed their playing eligibility at UT had a 100 percent graduation rate. And since being diagnosed with early onset dementia a little over two years ago, she has led a foundation that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund Alzheimer's research.

For all of those reasons and more, the next edition of the Tennessee Blue Book is being dedicated to Coach Summitt.

"Coach Summitt has been an inspiration to countless Tennesseans first as a basketball coach and more recently as a strong advocate for Alzheimer's research," Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. "I am pleased that the next edition of the Tennessee Blue Book will pay tribute to her legacy."
