Several Frostburg State University student-athletes volunteered
their time at the Spring Games of the Allegany (Md.) County Special
Olympics as part of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC),

The Bobcats were responsible for escorting Olympians to their events, handing out medals, setting up events and recording event results.

Earlier this year, the SAAC committees at Marymount University
and Wesley College also participated in Special Olympics
