Eighteen high school student‐athletes from across the Hoosier State will begin the school year as members of the 2017‐18 IHSAA Student Advisory Committee (SAC).
Nine incoming juniors will join nine seniors beginning their second year with the group which will receive hands‐on experience in various areas as well as serve as a voice to the IHSAA staff.
Each year, the IHSAA receives nominations from school principals on behalf of student‐athletes from IHSAA member schools. From that group of nominations, 20 are selected for interviews by members of the IHSAA Executive Committee, Executive Staff and returning members of the SAC. From those interviews, nine juniors are invited to join the group of nine seniors.
Individuals who will serve as part of this year’s committee include:
The SAC, which began in 2001‐02, represents the entire IHSAA membership of 409 schools, and its structure reflects that of the IHSAA Board of Directors in terms of classification and districts.
The SAC meets four times annually – twice each semester – and is responsible for hosting meetings with student peers at the upcoming Fall Area Principals Meetings; assisting with the awards ceremonies at IHSAA state championship events throughout the school year, planning and administering the annual IHSAA Student Leadership Conference in June and; to engage in and support the activities of Special Olympics Indiana including the Unified Track & Field State Tournament.
