If you live in Minnesota like I do you are very aware of the WNBA. The WNBA, or Women’s National Basketball Association, is the summer – and female – version of the NBA. Our hometown, Minnesota Lynx have been National Champions three times. This year our Lynx are in the play-off process right now and being led by some star players including recently named League MVP Sylvia Fowles.
According to a recent article in her hometown Miami Herald, Fowles is a 6’6″ center who averages 18.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game for the Lynx. She is also a former United States Olympic Gold Medalist in Basketball.
What people probably don’t know about Fowles is that she is a Mortuary Science student and intends to work in that industry once her playing days are over. The Miami Herald article notes that she takes classes on-line at the time, but has already taken classes in cremation and embalming.
Funeral Director Daily take: We not only are looking for Sylvia Fowles to lead the Minnesota Lynx to their 4th National Championship, but those of us in the funeral industry are anxiously looking forward to when she will be one of us — helping guide families through difficult times.
