The NCAA Division III appointed Penn State Abington junior Michael Litz to the Division III Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), effective January 2019.
“I am very grateful to have been selected as an NCAA Division III SAAC representative,” Litz said. “Being a representative for Division III SAAC allows my voice to be heard on behalf of an incredible institution in Penn State Abington that exemplifies diversity. Abington’s student-athlete community is a microcosm of the diversity our campus is most proud of.”
Litz, a tennis player, was elected by his peers as the NEAC SAAC chair in November 2017 and has exhibited a high level of engagement over the course of the past year. In addition to his recent work with SAAC at the national level, Litz’s responsibilities within the conference have also involved serving on the NEAC Strategic Planning Committee.
“Everyone at Abington is extremely proud to have Mike serve on the NCAA Division III SAAC to represent the NEAC and its student athletes,” said Deb Solfaro, director of athletics, intramurals and recreation at Penn State Abington.
“Under Mike’s leadership, the SAAC is growing in mission and participation on our campus, and he is devoted to the Division III student-athlete model. Having worked so closely with Mike, I can promise he will work hard and with integrity as he seeks to serve the membership.”
