I have been blessed to know Pam Borton for fourteen years. I was there to cheer her on during her Final Four run in 2004 and there to support her just a few years later when several players left the program. It was easy to cheer/support Pam for several reasons. Importantly, she deeply cared about everyone she met: her student-athletes, staff, others in the department, on campus and in the community. She was and continues to be generous with her time and resources to assist others. I admire her because she has “stayed the course,” never getting too “high” or too “low,” believing in herself and never compromising from the principles so important to her. Pam sees the “big picture,” understanding that with challenges come opportunities.
Life is about relationships and I am thankful for Pam’s leadership, passion, grace and friendship. She impacted many during her career as a coach and continues to do so today in her work as an executive, consultant, and motivational speaker and now as an author. She is truly “On Point.”
