Bobbie Baily Awards for Athletic Excellence

Kennesaw State University
Girls and Women in Sport Night
for the Presentation of the
Bobbie Bailey Awards for Athletic Excellence


The Kennesaw State University Department of Health Promotion and Physical Education along with the Georgia Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance sponsors the annual recognition of National Girls and Women in Sports Day by hosting the Bobbie Bailey Awards ceremony.  This ceremony highlights the accomplishments of local high school female athletes from Cobb, Cherokee, Paulding, Bartow and Douglas counties, as nominated by their respective schools.  The awards are named for Dr. M. Bobbie Bailey, a long time friend and benefactor of Kennesaw State University academics and athletics.  During the ceremony, the successes of KSU women’s athletic teams are also recognized.


Current sponsors for the National Girls and Women in Sports Day are: Girl Scouts of the USA, Girls Incorporated, the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport, the National Women's Law Center, and the Women's Sports Foundation. 


We will host our 21rd celebration in February 2013 in the M. Bobbie Bailey and Family Performance Hall on the KSU campus. The event is free and all interested persons are invited to attend, although the ceremony may be best suited to persons over the age of 12.  More details will be provided soon.
