                Award, the only time a woman has received the award;
            (4) Wilma G. Rudolph, a graduate of Tennessee State 
        University, a successful businessperson, a mother, an athlete, 
        a coach, and a teacher, who passed away on November 12, 1994, 
        will forever remain an inspiration to all able-bodied and 
        physically-challenged individuals in overcoming odds;
