SAAC Releases Sportsmanship Video
Every year, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) sponsors a different initiative for member schools to promote to their student-athletes, parents, faculty, staff and other community fans. This year, the spotlight was focused on sportmanship.
The Randolph College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee composed a video to display the importance of sportmanship.
Randolph SAAC Collects for Hurricane Harvey Relief
In the wake of devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, the Randolph College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee answered the call set forth by University of Houston head men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson. From Sept. 1 to Sept. 9, SAAC placed donation boxes in the lobby of the RAD and Main Hall, as well as at the men's and women's soccer home openers, to collect new or slightly worn t-shirts and athletic shoes for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Randolph SAAC Teams Up with Zach Speaks Inc. for Autism Awareness
As part of its year-long Autism Awareness campaign, the Randolph College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee has partnered with Zach Speaks Inc., a local non-profit organization that helps pay for therapy services for families with autistic children.
"This year we chose to raise awareness for autism because NCAA Division III athletics has a partnership with the Special Olympics, as well as the fact that there are people in the community around us who are on the spectrum," explained SAAC President Jordyn Knapp.
Zach Speaks Inc. is named after founder Lauren Blundell's son, Zach Blundell, who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was 2 1/2. The mission of this non-profit organization has been to provide children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder the opportunity to obtain therapy that their family could not otherwise afford.
Through donations, Zach Speaks Inc. is able to provide three consecutive months of speech or occupational therapy for individuals diagnosed with autism between the ages of 3 to 18.

What is SAAC?
What happens if you have to miss a quiz in your history class for an away game? How about if practice times conflict with dining hall hours? Who's going to be sure that the athletic awards banquet is properly planned and that the right student-athletes are recognized?
No group more effectively addresses the needs of student athletes than the athletes themselves. That's why, since 1997, the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has been speaking up on behalf of all WildCats - serving as a liaison between the athletes, the Athletics Department, and the Randolph community at large. An officially recognized student government organization, the Committee is governed by the SAAC Constitution.
SAAC members also help organize a number of community service activities in Lynchburg and on the Randolph campus, like canned food drives and blood drives.
