Sophomores Everett Minchew (Marlton, N.J./Camden Catholic) of the men's soccer team and Kate Calabro (Seaford, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) of the women's volleyball team represented The University of Scranton at the NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C. over the weekend.
The NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum engages a diverse and dynamic representation of student-athletes, coaches, faculty and administrators. Student-athletes selected to attend the forum return to campus with invaluable leadership skills, the experience of exploring the relationship between personal values, core beliefs and behavioral styles, and a thorough understanding of the NCAA as a whole, the different divisional perspectives and the valuable role of Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAAC).
The Leadership Forum, created in 1997, has been a life-changing experience for more than 5,000 student-athletes, many who have grown personally and professionally, gained a new network of peers and friends, as well as felt the rewards and importance of community service.
