Meet Tori Murden McClure, the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean!
Tori Murden McClure, President of Spalding University in Louisville, is an explorer and adventurer whose travels have taken her to Kenya, Antarctica, Mt. Rainer, as well as across an ocean. McClure was the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean, and her adventures are depicted in her memoir, A Pearl in the Storm (Harper, 2009). She was also the first woman and first American to travel over land to the geographic South Pole, skiing 750 miles from the ice shelf to the Pole. She believes the lessons learned in the wild have served her in her professional life as an attorney and civic and educational leader. She became president of Spalding University in July 2010. She previously served as a trustee and then a vice-president of the institution. She holds degrees from Smith College, Harvard University, University of Louisville, and Spalding University.
