Following Monday's news that Augusta National Golf Club has invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first female members since the club was founded in 1932, WNBA President Laurel J. Richie released the following statement.
"Condoleezza Rice has been a pioneer and trailblazer on so many fronts that the WNBA recognized her as our Inspiration Award recipient in 2007," said WNBA President Laurel J. Richie. "Today, she continues to inspire, from her roles as an accomplished musician to a university provost, from National Security Advisor to the first female African-American Secretary of State, to now being one of the first women to be admitted to the Augusta National Golf Club."
