Fisk University recently announced the launch of the first HBCU Intercollegiate Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Team.
The university asserts that women’s gymnastics embodies the same values as the university: determination, excellence and commitment to a more just and equitable future, adding that these values have always remained at the forefront of women’s gymnastics.
Fisk is thrilled to welcome these outstanding student-athletes to its campus, which will begin this fall. Fisk University has been recognized for its commitment to academic excellence and social justice. In recent years, he has focused on growing his athletic profile after there was growing interest among student-athletes in an elite HBCU experience.
The school has been home to NBA legend Kenny Anderson and former soccer star Desmond Armstrong and offers an outstanding women’s volleyball program under coach Jessica Enderle. Fisk is about to establish an elite list of national programs.
“Fisk University has built remarkable momentum in recent years,” said President Vann Newkirk. The University strives to prepare the next generation of leaders and senior managers.
Student-athletes depend on an institution that allows them to express their unique talents toward career success.
Fisk’s has many corporate partners who are also excited about the talent pipelines and programming that has been created to maximize the potential of their students and student-athletes.
The recent announcement of Fisk’s partnership with the Los Angeles Lakers adds another opportunity for students to excel in athletics.
Fisk University has already begun locking in scholarship funding for future student-athletes on the gymnastics team. He plans to hold conferences, clinics and invites in partnership with organizations like Brown Girls do Gymnastics.
