April 6-10 is NCAA III Student-Athlete Week, a chance for students, faculty, and staff to join in the celebration of Webster’s student-athletes, who work hard and sacrifice to represent the University, and gain a greater appreciation of NCAA III Athletics. The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for Webster University Athletics has worked hard to plan a number of events to celebrate the University’s Division III membership and its student-athletes throughout the week.

As one of the activities, the SAAC is hosting a Tennis Shoe Drive benefiting the organization Soles4Souls, a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. Bring any used tennis shoes you wish to donate to the Athletics Office in the University Center from April 6-10.

Other planned events will includes a March Madness watch party, a movie night, a “Letters to the Troops” campaign and a “Pie A Coach” fundraiser. In addition, students’ participation will win them raffle tickets for a prize drawing.
