Clarksville, Ark.- The University of the Ozarks Student-Athlete Advisory Committee joins the 15 SAAC groups within the American Southwest Conference in the "Make a Change in 14 Days" loose coin campaign for charity.
<#IMAGE:1#>The University of the Ozarks SAAC will use coins collected to support the Ozark Rape Crisis Center in Clarksville. Arrangements are in place to collect change (coins) during the home basketball games at the University of the Ozarks campus over the 14-day period of January 20 through February 2. “Make a Change in 14 Days” will coincide with the turn of the conference basketball season. The conference-wide SAAC project is also designed as a challenge among the ASC campuses. The SAAC collecting the most funds will be honored by the conference. The top school from each of these four “division pools,” compiled from opponents over the 14-day stretch, will be honored as well: Pool 1 - University of Texas at Dallas, University of the Ozarks and University of Texas at Tyler Pool 2 - East Texas Baptist, LeTourneau University, Louisiana College and Mississippi College Pool 3 - Howard Payne University, Sul Ross State University, McMurry University and Hardin-Simmons Pool 4 - Concordia University at Austin, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Schreiner University and Texas Lutheran University.
