Nice Article about Shannon MacMillan

Post by Stonehouse on Tue Mar 04, 2008 7:59 am

I thought this article was extremely well done... I even sent the writer a quick note to let him know as much, which I very rarely do:

Whenever Shannon MacMillan is in need of inspiration in her new line of work, all she has to do is look up.

There, hanging from the middle of a wall in the office she occupies as a first-year assistant coach for the UCLA women's soccer team, is a collage honoring the memory of Clive Charles. A photo of Charles, sporting an afro, playing for the Portland Timbers of the old North American Soccer League. A photo of Charles with his arms around MacMillan and Tiffeny Milbrett, the two most famous products of his long, illustrious tenure as the men's and women's soccer coach at the University of Portland.
...
"I walked away from the University of Portland knowing that my career truly started there," MacMillan said recently, "and that that man helped me grow and learn and afforded me the opportunity to become who I am."
...
Tonight, when the 33-year-old MacMillan is inducted into the Breitbard Hall of Fame, Charles will be with her in spirit ---- as he is for every day of her life.
