Congratulations to L.A. mom and L.A. Parent cover model Lisa Leslie, who will be inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2015. The ceremony will take place in Knoxville, Tenn., June 13.

Leslie and her basketball leadership academy for kids were profiled in our September 2013 issue. The Lisa Leslie Basketball & Leadership Academy, which Leslie runs with her husband, Michael, is a hands-on program housed at Viewpoint School in Calabasas. The program teaches children not only the fundamentals of basketball, but how to be leaders and responsible citizens off the court.

After graduating from USC, Lisa won four Olympic gold medals for USA Basketball and two WNBA championships with the Los Angeles Sparks before retiring in 2009.
