Lifelong Learners Interested in Minnesota's History in the Olympics
Author Patrick "Packy" Mader is excited to be invited to share his passion for Minnesota sports, history, and geography with 55+ members of the Rosemount community. His book, Minnesota Gold, features the stories, lives, challenges, perseverance, and achievements of 57 Minnesota athletes who competed on the world stage--primarily the Olympics. One runner who will be profiled in his forthcoming second volume is Heather Dorniden, a Rosemount High School graduate and NCAA champion in the 800-meter run. Four Dakota County athletes are highlighted in the first book in a variety of sports and eras. Come learn about these remarkable athletes and how they have contributed to their sport and communities.
Heather Dorniden, Rosemount High School runner and Big 10 and national collegiate champion, ran at the University of Minnesota; Shani Marks, a graduate of Apple Valley High School and a 2008 Olympian, ran at the U of M too.
