Meredith SAAC Holds Leadership Day
Raleigh, N.C. - This past weekend Meredith College
student-athletes participated in a peer devised Student-Athlete
Advisory Committee (SAAC) Leadership Day. Leaders from each
of Meredith's six sports teams were present. The event was
designed to promote unity, discuss the topic of Integrity and to
allow each participant the opportunity to evaluate their own
Athletes also had that opportunity to participate in a service project for the Ronald McDonald House. This project challenged them to use their creative side to paint canvasses that will be hung in a local Ronald McDonald House. The paintings were cheerful expressions of love, encouragement and fun that the athletes wish to share with the children and families utilizing the Ronald McDonald House.
The SAAC Leadership Day was a huge success and the Meredith athletes hope to make this an annual event. The event co-chairs were Caroline Cobb, Puja Patel, Anna Hayes, Meg Crumpton, Sara Cranford and SAAC advisor Fiona Barkley.
