Schnaible and Duncan tapped to attend NCAA Leadership Forum in Washington, DC

Albany, NY---Two student-athletes from The Sage Colleges' will be attending the 2017 NCAA Student Leadership Forum in Washington, DC November 16-19. Attending the forum from Sage will be sophomore men's golf and men's volleyball player, Tyler Schnaible (Ballston Lake, NY/Shenendehowa) and junior softball team captain Kiersten Duncan (Millerton, NY/Taconic Hills).

The NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum engages a diverse and dynamic representation of student-athletes, coaches, faculty and administrators. Student-athletes selected to attend the forum return to campus with invaluable leadership skills, the experience of exploring the relationship between personal values, core beliefs and behavioral styles, and a thorough understanding of the NCAA as a whole, the different divisional perspectives and the valuable role of Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAAC).

Sage Director of Athletics Sandy Augstein-Collins, added "The NCAA Student Leadership Forum is a wonderful opportunity for our student-athletes to further develop life-long skills that they can utilize here at Sage as leaders of their teams." She continued, "I am thrilled that Kiersten Duncan and Tyler Schnaible have been selected to represent Sage!  We have many amazing student-athletes which made the selection process extremely difficult.  I am confident that Kiersten and Tyler will learn useful skills and I look forward to their implementation upon their return to Sage."

Schnaible noted, "I'm excited and honored to have been chosen for such an event." He continued, "It is going to be a great experience and I'm sure they (NCAA) have planned out an engaging agenda for us. I look forward to making new friends and connections along with bringing back valuable information for the Sage student-athletes and our Gator community."

Duncan added, "I am so excited to be given the opportunity to attend the NCAA Leadership Forum and be able to bring back skills to apply to the softball team as well as Sage Athletics." She continued, "This will be an awesome experience and I can't wait to meet other student-athletes from around the country, who share the same passion for athletics like myself."

The Leadership Forum, created in 1997, has been a life-changing experience for more than 5,000 student-athletes, many who have grown personally and professionally, gained a new network of peers and friends, as well as felt the rewards and importance of community service.

In 2002, the NCAA began divisional regionally based leadership conferences for Division I, II and III student-athletes, coaches and administrators. Division I, II and III student-athletes, coaches and administrators met regionally to discuss issues and information impacting the student-athlete experience. In the fall of 2010, the NCAA consolidated Leadership Forum participants from Divisions I, II and III into a single forum at one site on the same weekend.

The 2017-18 NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum will take place in November 16-19 in Washington, D.C.
