Shiver, who like Newell played softball for Sweatt, said “I feel like she’s a positive role model for anyone who needs someone.”

In other business, Pam Shiver asked the board to consider revising the policy of wearing of tights “or whatever you call them, undergarments and gym wear” to school.

“This is something we need to address,” she said. “They should be considered undergarments.”
