NCAA Athlete and Inspiration Speaker Schuyler Bailar to Speak At Metea Valley

Reported by webmaster@ipsd.org on 8/22/19.

Schuyler Bailar, award-winning NCAA Athlete and Inspirational Speaker to speak at Metea Valley High School on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 7 pm. This event is FREE to the public. Please reserve your seat here.

Schuyler Bailar was one of the nation’s top 20 15-year-old breaststroke swimmers. By 17, his relay team set a national age-group record. A 25-time National Championship Qualifier, a two-time All-American, he was recruited by and swam for Harvard University on one of the winningest teams in Harvard’s history.

Schuyler is also the first openly transgender athlete to compete in any sport on an NCAA Division I men’s team.

Schuyler’s difficult choice – to transition while potentially giving up the prospect of being an NCAA Champion – as a female swimmer – was historic and timely. His story has appeared everywhere from The Washington Post to 60 Minutes and The Ellen Show.
