When the Pennsylvania Senate gaveled into session on the afternoon of Monday, June 3, 2013, one of their first orders of business was recognizing the special guests of Senator Gene Yaw. Those guests were Steve Keener, Little League® President and Chief Executive Officer, and Dr. Davie Jane Gilmour, Little League International Board of Directors Chairman and Pennsylvania College of Technology President.

Dr. Gilmour was then given the floor, where she informed the Pennsylvania Senate that this Thursday, June 6, Little League will celebrate the 74th Anniversary of the first time that a Little League baseball game was ever played. Since that day in 1939, Little League has expanded to 82 countries with the support of more than 1 million volunteers.

Starting with a familiar Little League message, Dr. Gilmour stressed the importance of Character, Courage and Loyalty to the Senate floor, and she concluded her message with some of the wisest words ever spoken: The Little League Pledge. This is the first year of Dr. Gilmour’s five-year tenure as Chair of the Little League International Board of Directors. She is the organization’s first female board chair.
