Rachel McLish, legendary bodybuilder and two-time winner of the Ms. Olympia title including the first one in 1980, talked to The University of Texas-Pan American and area high school athletes and University health and kinesiology students about the importance of higher education and of staying healthy and fit while visiting the campus May 25. McLish, a 1977 UTPA graduate who has authored two fitness books and has acted or appeared as herself in several videos and movies, is currently working on her third book. A Texas native, McLish combined a visit to her hometown of Harlingen with a volunteer participation in UTPA’s recent media campaign developed by the Office of University Relations highlighting successful graduates from the University.
