GARCIA TO HEADLINE NHHS ANNUAL MEETING ON NOV. 4
"Going for Wisconsin Gold" is the name of Garcia's book which provides insight into the lives of Wisconsin athletes who have represented our state and the USA in the Olympic games. More than 400 Wisconsinites have participated in the "Games". The book tells personal stories and contains photos from private collections of athletes who have gone for the gold. Garcia will recount her own experiences in meeting these athletes and recording their stories.
The author is a Madison, WI native and got her start in the TV sportscasting business in that same city, first as a sports reporter and then as the first female sports anchor in the state of WI and one of the first female anchors in the Midwest. After making a move to Milwaukee's WTMJ she hosted the Mike McCarthy Show and served as Green Bay Packer sideline reporter. Her memoirs of that time period were captured in her first book, "My Life with the Green and Gold: Tales from 20 Years of Sportscasting".
Garcia is also the author of a third volume, "No Stone Unturned: A Brother and Sister's Incredible Journey Through the Olympics and Cancer."
The NHHS event begins at 12 noon on the 4th. Admission for the luncheon and program is $20.00 per person. Reservations and payment are due by October 20, 2017 and can be mailed to NHHS at PO Box 144, New Holstein, WI 53061.
