NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Fisk University announced late Friday that the school would introduce a gymnastics program to its fold.
The program will start fall 2022, and will join 100 other schools with a competitive program. Fisk officials said the university would be the first historically black college and university with a program of this kind.
"This is a momentous occasion for our beloved university as we continue to meet the academic aspirations of our students and our student-athletes," Fisk University president Vann Newkirk Sr. said. "Our revered institution is prepared to nurture the next generation of competitive and award-winning Fisk gymnasts."
To accomplish this, Fisk has started a fundraising campaign for the program.
