Torres-Padin, Hoover and Song Selected to Participate in NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum

Case Western Reserve University senior Isa Torres-Padin of the women's cross country and track & field teams, junior Andrew Hoover of the wrestling team, and Head Wrestling Coach Danny Song have each been selected to participate in the 2019 NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum in Orlando, Florida from April 11 – 14.

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).

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.

The NCAA has one forum for Division I, II and III student-athletes.  For Division III, the forum is open to all institutions in an identified region based on a first-come, first-served basis in the eligible region.  Each eligible institution can send up to two student-athletes and one administrator.
