Former Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) President and Michigan native Emily DeWaters, '16, completed her third season with the women's lacrosse program.
A Richland native and Gull Lake High School graduate, DeWaters was a two-year captain of the women’s basketball squad.
Under her leadership, Albion’s SAAC was recognized by the National Association of Division III Athletic Administrators for its commitment to community service activities. She also spearheaded the “Our Words Matter” campaign as student-athletes joining the campus community in considering the impact of words that are usually spoken without much thought.
A psychological services major who graduated last May, DeWaters own community service included serving as a mentor in the Albion Community Schools and as a certified volleyball coach for Special Olympics Area 19.
