SARASOTA -The Women’s Sports Museum has named Beth Green president of the board of directors for 2018. She succeeds Mike Beaumier, who served as president of the Sarasota museum board in 2017.
Green served as the chair of the second annual Women’s Sports Museum Gala. The 2017 event at Michael’s by the Bay at Selby Gardens was attended by 200 people. Five women’s sports Trailblazers were honored at the event, and two high school students received $1,000 scholarships.
The Sarasota board is actively raising money to build the first and only standalone museum dedicated to women’s sports in the country.
Green is a 1994 graduate of Wittenberg University, and also has an MBA from Georgia State University. She has lived in Sarasota for 11 years.
“I am excited to take over the helm of The Women’s Sports Museum,” Green said. “The founding board has put us in an excellent position to move to the next phase of our overall goal of building the only Women’s Sports Museum in the world. This year we look forward to adding more mission-based programs to educate girls about the opportunities that exist in all areas of sports — amateur, collegiate, professional, as well as sports journalism and administration. We will be seeking like-minded communities partners and hope to find a temporary home for the museum to begin to take shape.”
