Dec. 1, 2008
LOGAN, Utah - Junior golfer Brandon Broadhead, sophomore track athlete Kimiko Kamo and academic coordinator Amy Crosbie represented Utah State University at the NCAA Regional Leadership Conference in San Diego, Calif., from Nov. 7-9.
The NCAA Leadership Conference was developed to provide student-athletes, coaches and administrators the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills and formulate a strategy to positively affect their campus, conference and communities in the future. Attendees participated in numerous educational sessions, which impact the development and growth of student-athletes on campus or within their conference.
The conference also gave participants a greater understanding of the NCAA, the Division I governance and legislation process, and the Division I National Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Other issues like; sportsmanship, diversity, nutrition, mental health and game environment allowed participants to explore how to play an active role, as an agent of change, in reference to these critical topics. Using the knowledge gained at the conference, participants will set out to create positive and lasting change throughout the NCAA structure, their communities and the world.
