Former Butlerite Lauren Wilkinson '11 Wins Olympic Silver!
Congratulations to Butler's Lauren Wilkinson on winning silver in women's eight rowing for Canada! In addition to rowing at Princeton, Lauren was one of the original curators for Butler's James S. Hall '34 Memorial Gallery.
The Vancouver Sun writes: "At 22, Wilkinson was the youngest member of the boat at London . . . Lauren might well be the face of the eights crew in 2016, but she was the 'hands' of the team this year. Last week, Maclean's magazine used two full pages to run a startling photo of her heavily calloused and blistered hands to demonstrate just how committed the women are."

Butler is proud to salute Lauren's Olympian drive and commitment.
