Alex Morgan

Every fall, Slippery Rock University invites an influencer to visit the university as a guest speaker. Natalie Glenn, UPB Director of Speakers booked an impressive program. After six months of planning and waiting, SRU welcomed Alex Morgan on Saturday, September 22nd as the UPB Fall speaker. While Alex is best known for being co-captian of the world champion women's soccer team she has made an impact off the field too. While visiting Slippery Rock, Alex spoke one-on-one with the soccer teams and gender studies club about her lifestyle as a professional soccer player and the on-going lawsuit for equal pay for female athletes. The main event took place in the Morrow Field House attended by 834 people. Students, parents, and community families hung onto every word as Alex talked about the path to the world cup. Her experience as an athlete, activist, and team member is unprecedented and an imspiration across the country. The 2019 fall program will be hard to top, but SRU's University Program Board is up for the challenge!
