(Kwan can be seen laughing in the back row in the last photo at the bottom.)

As Women's History Month draws to a close, First Lady Michelle Obama brought a group of America's most accomplished women to D.C. to meet with area students. Among the attendees were WNBA star Lisa Leslie, former Olympians Michelle Kwan and Dominique Dawes, actresses Geena Davis and Hillary Swank, astronaut Ellen Ochoa, Air Force General Dana Born, and almost a dozen more leaders from the worlds of business and entertainment.

Good for Michelle. She continues to make her fans proud long after she retired from eligible competition.

These are the stories I love to read about this sport. MK is not only a skater's role model she is a role model to all of us.

It's so nice to see her involved in things that continue to excite and motivate her and that give her opportunities to use her talents off the ice as well.
