Helen Stephens running to school

Another Illustration for the Notable Missourian series to be published by Truman State University Press.  This is Helen Stephens AKA the Fulton Flash.  She was an Olympic Gold Medalist (x2) and all around super athlete.  When she was a kid she did not have a track nearby to practice on, so to train Helen would jump ditches and fences and run through corn rows on the family farm.  She even outran her cousin...who was on a horse!
