The Student Alumni Associates recently won three awards at the CASE–ASAP District III Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.
More than 400 student leaders and ambassadors attended the convention, which consisted of programs about student organizations that serve alumni. The event was hosted by Georgia State University and was attended by a wide range of colleges in the Southeast.
SAA executive members Forbes Smallwood, Emily Costanzo, Lauren Gregg, Catherine Louk, and Abigail McKamey led a session detailing SAA’s membership, projects, and events. The presentation garnered a second-place win out of sixty presentations given at the convention.
SAA was also given the Outstanding External Program award for their UNITE program and the Outstanding Tried and True Program award for their Big Orange Birthday Bash project. In August, the executive members will present at the National CASE–ASAP Convention in New Orleans, where UT’s SAA will be eligible for national awards.
The Affiliated Student Advancement Programs, part of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, seek to enhance student involvement in all areas of advancement—from alumni relations and communications to fundraising, marketing, and related areas.
