DENTON, Texas (9/30/08) - Several North Texas student-athletes volunteered at the Cumberland Presbyterian Fall Festival this past weekend.
Members of the North Texas Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) set up a tent at the fall festival last weekend and handed out Mean Green memorabilia to members of the community. Athletes from track & field, volleyball, women's basketball and the swimming & diving teams volunteered for this event.
The North Texas Athletic Department seeks to provide opportunities for Mean Green student-athletes, coaches, and administrators to interact with the local and regional community in an effort to extend goodwill, to help fulfill specific needs, and to "give back" to our valued constituents. Past projects have included reading to children at various schools and after-school programs, neighborhood beautification projects, Habitat for Humanity and others.
