GSW's Korczyk Named to NCAA National SAAC Committee
The NCAA recently announced that Stevi Korczyk, a junior
cross-country runner at Georgia Southwestern State University, will
represent the Peach Belt Conference on the NCAA Division II
Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Korczyk is from Conyers, GA and is pursuing a degree in Exercise Science. She has competed in cross-country for three years at GSW and is currently the President of the GSW SAAC. Her appointment with the Division II SAAC will continue through the close of the 2010 NCAA National Convention.
The mission of the NCAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare and fostering a positive student-athlete image.
The Division II SAAC consists of one student-athlete representative from each of the Division II multi-sport voting conferences, one student-athlete representative of Division II independent institutions, and two student-athlete at-large positions.
The Division II SAAC affects the legislative process via an annual summit held each July with the Division II Management Council, during which members of the SAAC have an opportunity to interact with members of the Management Council on proposed NCAA legislation and current Division II issues. Also, committee members participate in the NCAA Convention each January where they express the student-athlete voice on collective concerns regarding proposed Division II legislation.
Division II national SAAC members actively take the lead in addressing issues facing Division II student-athletes such as the development of campus and conference SAACs, Title IX education, faculty/student-athlete relations and championships enhancements.
On the course, Korczyk ran in all six meets for the Lady Hurricanes in 2007, finishing 24th at the Columbus State Inivtational and 63rd at the PBC Championships.
