Though born in Tuskegee, Alabama, Robin Roberts grew up in Pass Christian, Mississippi, where she played basketball and tennis, among other sports.
She attended Pass Christian High School and graduated as the class of 1979 salutatorian.
The only scholarship left was a tennis scholarship, and she was promised that there would be a journalism scholarship by the time she would graduate.
She went on to become a standout performer on the women's basketball team, ending her career as the school's third all-time leading scorer (1,446 points) and rebounder (1,034).
She became co-anchor on Good Morning America in 2005.
She has been treated for breast cancer and for myelodysplastic syndrome.
She is the daughter of Lucimarian (née Tolliver) and Colonel Lawrence E. In a 2006 presentation to the assembled student body at Abilene Christian University, Roberts credited her parents as cultivating the "three 'D's: Discipline, Determination, and 'De Lord'." Roberts noted on the January 14, 2007, edition of Costas on the Radio that she was offered a scholarship to play basketball at Louisiana State University but thought the school was too big and impersonal after visiting the campus.
On her way back to Pass Christian from that visit, she saw a road sign for Southeastern Louisiana University, stopped to visit and decided to enroll.
In 2001, Roberts received the Mel Greenberg Media Award, presented by the WBCA.
