Jessica Poole has been an industry leader in athletics for over 20 years. She believes that sports can change the world and has enjoyed seeing the opportunities created and lives changed when people have the opportunity to participate in sports. While the bulk of her career has been spent in a college setting, Poole has spent time working in professional tennis and the opportunity with Minnesota Aurora FC provides her an opportunity to return to her first sport of soccer.  Poole is currently the only woman of color running a professional or amateur sports team in the great Minneapolis area.

The Rotary Club of Edina seeks nominees for the 17th-annual “Chrysanne Manoles Women In Leadership Award.”
Nominees cannot be current Rotarians and must live, work or volunteer in Edina. Female nominees must demonstrate Rotary’s “Four Way Test” of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
To nominate a woman for the prestigious award, submit a simple form at https://bit.ly/WILAward2024. Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, April 30.
The 2024 Chrysanne Manoles Women In Leadership Award will be announced at the May 23 meeting of the Rotary Club of Edina.
