STCC Diversity Council to Host Bonnie St. John
SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Technical Community College Diversity Council will welcome Bonnie St. John to the STCC campus on Wednesday, Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. in the gym in Building 2 (Scibelli Hall).
Despite having her right leg amputated at the age of 5, St. John became the first African-American ever to win Olympic or Paralympic medals in ski racing, taking home a silver and two bronze medals in downhill events at the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria.
St. John is also a bestselling author, a highly sought-after keynote speaker, a television and radio personality, a business owner, and a Fortune 500 leadership consultant. She is the author of six books, and her most recent number-one bestseller, How Great Women Lead, is co-authored with her teenage daughter. The STCC event is free and open to the public.
