SRU students were polled earlier this semester on potential campus speakers and they selected Douglas as their top choice. They will hear from her in a moderated conversation at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the Smith Student Center Ballroom. General public tickets will be on sale for $5 at the door.
Douglas became the first African-American gymnast to win Olympic gold when she competed in the 2012 games in London. She won a third gold medal at the 2016 games in Rio.
