UT Martin hosted a 90th birthday party Jan. 11 in honor of Bettye Giles (foreground), professor emeritus of physical education and former director of women’s athletics, in the Champions Club at Hardy Graham Stadium. Giles was instrumental in the development of women’s intercollegiate athletics nationwide and served on the committee that founded the Tennessee College Women’s Sports Federation. Her work, along with that of other women’s athletic champions, ultimately resulted in the passing of Title IX legislation.
