This week the Indiana High School Athletic Association announced the 18 high school student-athletes from across Indiana that will begin the school year as members of the 2012-13 IHSAA Student Advisory Committee (SAC).
Among the select 18, there will be six student-athletes from Central Indiana that will represent the IHSAA membership.
On the committee from the region will be: Perry Meridian senior Josh Clark, North Central senior Tessa Faulkens, Mooresville senior Mac Norton, Plainfield senior Brynn Olinger, Danville junior Turner Perkins and Hamilton Southeastern senior Ally Stein.
Stein was named president of the 2012-13 IHSAA Student Advisory Committee. She was elected by her peers for the school year. Stein is a returning member of SAC, serving on the Committee as a junior.
The IHSAA began sponsoring the Student Advisory Committee in 2001-02 to give the group of student-athletes hands-on experience and a voice to the IHSAA staff.
The SAC meets four times annually 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 and planning and administering the annual IHSAA Student Leadership Conference in June.
Other SAC functions include the development of an IHSAA Captain’s Handbook which will be distributed to member schools this fall as well as assisting in the creation of multiple public service announcements addressing good sportsmanship which will be utilized during 2012-13 state championship events.
The SAC represents the entire IHSAA membership of 407 schools. Each year, the IHSAA receives nominations from school principals on behalf of the student-athletes who attended the IHSAA Student Leadership Conference in June. 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 20 interviews, nine are invited to join the new group.
Nine seniors return for a second year with the committee while nine juniors will take part for the first time.
