Olympic Track & Field athlete Priscilla Frederick, who competed in the 2016 Olympic games, will visit Neumann University on February 21 for “Dreams on Tap,” the next installment in Neumann Campus Ministry’s Theology on Tap series.
When she is not representing her father’s home country of Antigua & Barbuda in the Olympics, Frederick regularly competes around the world specializing in the high jump. Earlier, she represented St. John’s University Track & Field in New York City and, during that time, earned seven All-American Honors and two Big East championships. Today, she serves as volunteer coach for the Women’s High Jump program at Princeton University and is Assistant Coach for Track & Field at her high school alma mater, Paul VI High School in Haddonfield, NJ.
On February 21, Frederick will speak with Neumann University students about her own journey and the role of faith in her life. Connecting with and engaging students is not new to Priscilla; students whom she has previously met describe her as genuine, inspiring, and a great witness to her faith.
“I am extremely excited and honored to be speaking at Neumann University!” said Frederick. “Over the last four months I’ve received a lot of feedback about my talks and how they’ve motivated and inspired students and athletes from different points of view. I cover all aspects of my professional career and the journey I’ve taken with my faith… I hope that when the students leave they feel excited about life and what God has truly put in their hearts!”
Dreams on Tap will begin at 8pm on Tuesday, February 21 in the Student Multipurpose Hall in the Bruder Life Center at Neumann University. All students are welcome; no registration is necessary.
