2020-21 GHSA Student Athlete Advisory Council
The 2020-21 GHSA Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) had its first meeting virtually on August 26, 2020. The Council is made up of 18 student-athletes from 469 GHSA member schools. The students submitted applications last spring and were chosen by a panel that scored their applications based on answers to five questions. There is a male and female representative for each classification and two “at large” members.
The focus continues with the topic of sportsmanship between teams, schools and officials. Another topic is unifying the student body and sports teams, and ways to reach out to all students no matter their race, economic backgrounds, athletic ability, academic success, etc.
Members will try to reach out to students in schools of the same classification to help them understand the role of the GHSA and be their voice. The council will be posting on Instagram (@ghsa.saac) and Twitter (@athleteGhsa).
