National SAAC Representative Message


Welcome to the Conference Carolinas Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) website! My name is Francesca Ceppi. I am the National SAAC representative for Conference Carolinas. It is truly an honor and privilege to represent all the student-athletes at a national level.

SAAC, as its name implies, is a committee formed by student-athletes who become liaisons and advocated for their peers. The student-athletes that take part of the committee ought to be role models and leaders that help improve the overall athlete experience. One responsibility of SAAC is to voice out the opinions on legislation proposals of the NCAA.

The committee raises funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation. The Make-A-Wish foundation is a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children diagnosed with diseases. Every effort made to raise funds helps children and their families have an experience they will never forget.

Remember that your voice is being heard! I encourage you to follow Conference Carolinas on social media so you can find out of everything that is going on. I am proud to say that I chose Division II and Conference Carolinas!
