Review of spring 2007 Activities:

-A team from GCSU attended the NCAA APPLE Conference in Charlottesville, Virginia in January. The team consisted of Mandy Jarriel (instructor), Jenna Geary (trainer), Ginger Miller (coach), Chris Lamphere (Counselor/AOD Coordinator) and athletes Phillip Breaux, Jessica McGinnis and Shelbie Lyndsey. As a result of attending, the team decided to implement a Student Athlete Mentor Program (SAM) on campus this coming Fall. The goal of the SAM program is to focus on substance abuse issues.

-A team of five staff members were trained as Prime For Life (PFL) instructors. This team consists of Chris Lamphere (Counselor/AOD Coordinator), Rachel Sullivan (University Health Educator), Eve Puckett (Assistant Director for Residence Education), Reese Cohn (Assistant Director for Student Involvement) and Amy Whatley (Program Coordinator, Wellness Depot). Student athletes and Greeks will be taking their training in PFL in 2007-2008.

- Peers Advocating for Wellness Successfully (P.A.W.S.) members manned informational tables during the Health Fair, springfest and during Safe Spring Break Week.
