Skip Donald, Taylor Roberts to Meet at SEC Student-Athlete Advisory Council This Weekend

 GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Twenty-five members of the Southeastern Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), including Florida Men’s Diving member Skip Donald and Florida Women’s Golf member Taylor Roberts will gather for an annual meeting Friday and Saturday at the SEC offices in Birmingham, Ala.
The meeting will serve as an opportunity for the student-athletes to engage with campus leaders and conference office staff. Along with Student-Athlete Leadership Councils for football and men’s and women’s basketball, SAAC provides a conduit of communication to the conference office on issues related to student-athlete experience, student-athlete wellness and playing rules.
A Woodlands, Texas native, Donald was a member of the 2023 SEC Championship winning team and an NCAA Championship qualifier. He has volunteered at various organization, such as Brandon Ling Memorial Sports Camp, Abiding Savior Lutheran Church’s Annual Pumpkin Patch, and has been involved a lot with Gator Tracks.

In just three years at Florida, Roberts was named to the 2023 SEC Community Service Team. She has totaled numerous hours of community service in various opportunities, such as Gators Lunch Buddies and Reading program, Girls on the Run, Project Makeover, and Gators Tracks Wrapping and Delivery. She is also a campus leader for The Hidden Opponent. Last summer she helped co-host the Impact Cup, a golf tournament to help raise awareness for youth mental health.

Agenda items for the SEC SAAC meeting include a conversation with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey, a presentation from Podium X to provide the student-athletes with valuable tools to help build their resumes and tell their personal, athletic, and professional story through an online platform, a review of NCAA and SEC legislative items, and a discussion on SAAC campus programming. The group will also hear an update from the NCAA Division I SAAC Executive Board and have a conversation with SEC Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Katie O’Neal.
