Yolanda Jackson is a treasured advocate and leader in women’s sports. Every time I turn around at a women’s sporting event, she’s there, and it’s always a delight to see her. Yolanda is a good friend who never misses a chance to support anything women in sports — or women in the sports media — are doing. Girls and women throughout sports are lucky to have her on their side.
