I have known Corrine for some time. She has always been so gracious and, of course, that great smile.
There was so much I did not know – but I think that is her personality.
I always knew she was a great gymnast – and that was fun, we always had such great respect for each other’s gymnastics.
Corrine was the first Black female to win the NCAA All-Around Gymnastics Championships!
She has had a great career on the national team- then in the NCAA and now in coaching.
Somewhere she found the time to go to law school, too!
We will be featuring more NCAA gymnasts this month. For today, we salute Corrine Wright (Tarver) for our Black Gymnasts in History project.
