Veteran Boxing Referee, Jeffrey Hinds has been climbing into boxing rings for over 25 years. Last week there was a crisis and Hinds stepped up and stepped into the ring as the MC for the first time.

I prefer to choose people for the 1st Star position but sometimes we need to make adjustments. Wednesday was International Women’s Day and the 101 search feeds were loaded with great links shining the spotlight on female referees and umpires all over the world. It was a fascinating day filled with stories and recognition of the women who are charging forward and creating opportunities for young girls to play and officiate in all sports. There were too many posts that day to choose one single lady who stood out more than any others, so the 1st Star this week goes to the Female Referees and Umpires in all sports. Thank you for all you do!
