Clarksville, Ark.-For the third consecutive year, the University of the Ozarks Student-Athlete Advisory Committee joins every SAAC group within the American Southwest Conference in the "Make a Change in 14 Days" loose coin campaign for charity.
Ozarks’ SAAC will use coins collected to support the American Heart Association. Arrangements are in place to collect change from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the cafeteria and at the February 5 home basketball game.
The conference-wide SAAC project is also designed as a friendly 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:
• University of Texas at Dallas, University of the Ozarks, Louisiana College and Mississippi College
• East Texas Baptist University, LeTourneau University and University of Texas at Tyler
• Howard Payne University, Sul Ross State University, Schreiner University and Texas Lutheran University
• Concordia University at Austin, University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, McMurry University and Hardin-Simmons University
Last year, the 15 conference SAAC groups combined to raise $8138.88 for charity.
