Clemson Athletics Black History: Kim Graham

Kim Graham was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in 1998, the first African-American women’s track athlete to be chosen.  She was also named to the ACC 50-Year Anniversary women’s track team in 2003.

That same year Graham won the Frank Howard Award, the honor given each year to the athlete who  brought the most honor to Clemson University.

Graham was the first Clemson women’s track athlete to be named the Most Valuable Performer of the ACC Indoor Championships, and was a two-time winner of the award outdoors, 1991 and 1993.

Graham is Clemson’s all-time leader in ACC Championships, as she won 10 individual and five more on relays between 1991-93.  She was a five-time All-American, one indoor and four outdoor.

Internationally, Graham won a Gold Medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta as a member of the United States 4X100 meter relay team.
