Catchings has a passion for youth. While in Cleveland, Catchings will take time to speak with children at the Boys & Girls Club Tucker Unit and also speak to over 1100 middle and high school students from our five-county service area in the L. Quentin Lane Gymnasium on the Cleveland State campus.

One of the most decorated athletes of all time, Tamika Catchings has left an indelible mark at every level of the game. She is a 4-time Olympic gold medalist, 10-time WNBA All-Star, 5-time Defensive Player of the Year, and a WNBA Champion. While at the University of Tennessee, the Lady Vols had a record of 134-10 with four SEC regular season championships, three trips to the Elite Eight and two trips to the Final Four. She was a part of Pat Head Summitt's undefeated 39-0 squad in the 1997-98 season.

Beyond her on-court success, she is known for her off-court professionalism and was a three-time recipient of the Kim Perrot Sportsmanship Award. In 2004, she launched the Catch the Stars Foundation, which empowers youth by providing goal setting programs that promote Fitness, Literacy and Youth Development.

Since her retirement from professional basketball, Catchings added business owner to her resume as well. A true champion of the people, she divides her time between family, business interests, broadcasting, corporate boards and philanthropy.

“Tamika Catchings is a legend in the world of sports,” stated Dr. John Squires, CSCC Interim Vice President of Workforce Development, Institutional Research, and Advancement. “Her story is inspirational, and she has worked with organizations throughout the country to help youth. Cleveland State is excited to have Tamika Catchings on campus and in our community on February 23-24, 2023.”
