Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Raises the Bar during First Shark Night

Nova Southeastern University is one of nine schools in the Sunshine State Conference. Each school has student athletes who choose to participate in and represent their school through a club called Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and this year Nova Southeastern University is taking SAAC to a greater level.

In the past, athletes attended the meetings and volunteered at various events to maintain their SAAC status, but Lauren Boudreau (Sr., on the woman’s rowing team) decided to “raise the bar” for the participating athletes. Boudreau was elected President of NSU’s SAAC in the winter semester of 2011, and has changed the program immensely in just one semester. Through collaboration with and support from the executive board members of SAAC, Nova’s athletes are already making a bigger impact. SAAC works closely with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, by raising money as well as hosting special at-home athletic events for children to attend. In the past, NSU’s SAAC has raised a considerable amount of money for the organization, but Boudreau wants Nova’s athletes to do more.
