Sandy Hatfield Clubb
My oral history tells the story of Drake’s Athletic Director, Sandy Hatfield Clubb. A familiar face amongst athletes, Sandy is known for her enthusiasm with both athletics and academics. Growing up, Sandy was met with challenge after challenge, but her reliance on sport and education allowed her to succeed and be the leader that she is today. Many individuals aided in Sandy’s journey out of a darker past, providing her with opportunities to continue her education and now she is very passionate about the relationship between sport and education. Sandy’s story provides a unique insight into the female side athletics, which is traditionally a male-dominated field. Throughout this process, I conducted two interviews with Sandy, both in her office located in the Bell Center on Drake’s campus.
