Suzy Merchant and Allison Schmitt
MSU Women's Basketball Coach Suzy Merchant will welcome girls and their parents to the second annual empowHER Leadership Retreat. She'll share inspiring words with participants, explain how and why the retreat was developed, and she'll introduce everyone to Olympic medalist Allison Schmitt.
Allison has been very candid about her struggle with depression and the importance of mental health in everyone, especially athletes. She is the cousin of April Bocian, the basketball player in whose memory empowHER was created.
