UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -  On Thursday, August 24, 2017, at 12 p.m., Tanisha Wright will give a gallery talk with a discussion in the Penn State All-Sports Museum’s basketball gallery.

Tanisha Wright is a WNBA professional basketball player born in Brooklyn, New York but raised in West Mifflin, PA. Upon securing a full scholarship to Penn State, Wright would lead the Lady Lions to two Sweet Sixteen appearances and one Elite Eight appearance while advancing to the NCAA tournament every year in her four-year career. Wright graduated Penn State in 2005 with a Degree in Elementary Education. After graduation, the Seattle Storm selected Wright with the 12th pick of the WNBA draft. Wright will share what brought her to Penn State, her experiences as a Lady Lion and with the WNBA upon graduation.
