All year long, WKYC will be spotlighting Girls in STEM, an initiative that inspires girls to embrace science, technology, engineering and math.
On Tuesday's Donovan Live, our Betsy Kling welcomed the 'STEMbassador' of the week, Middle School and High School track coach, Veronica Clutter.
When we talk about STEM careers, coaching, may not come to mind. But, Clutter is training some of our top local athletes and wants you to rethink that.
Growing up in Geneva, Ohio, Clutter began running track in high school and in college was an all-American long jumper. Now she's back home helping other athletes reach their dreams at Spire Institute.
She studied exercise science at the University of Mount Union. That's where math and science come in. She found her passion in track. But she didn't stop there. She also tried out and landed a spot on the U.S. developmental bobsled team. After one season, an opportunity to coach at Mount Union came up and in June of this year she began coaching at Spire.
Hear from Clutter and learn more about her journey in the player above.
