Peggy Hothem ’71

Peggy Hothem ’71 – Has retired after 40 years of teaching in Christian higher education. “When I joined the team in 1967-68, we were of course still playing 6 player teams. Being a part of the basketball team caught my interest in teaching physical education and pursuing a Master’s degree in HPER. Upon that completion, I started teaching PE and coaching in Christian higher education. Those experiences turned into my going for an EdD in Leisure Studies. I attribute the beginning of this rewarding call to the Lord guiding me to play basketball at Malone!”
