The newly selected Athlete Presenters will receive advanced leadership training and an invitation to present their projects during one of the Regional Advisory Board meetings to be held via video conference this summer.

In order to quality for this honor, athlete candidates must have met the following criteria:
1) Participation in the 2018 BOLT and MARCH Leadership Workshop
2) Lead a give-back project in their All Star program, school or community utilizing Healthy Kids Out of School curriculum
3) Submit their project, outcomes and letters of recommendation to the USASF Leadership Team for review

"This year's projects are well-crafted, impactful and impressive! I hope their programs and communities are as proud of them as we are. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Leadership Team and to be able to continue working with these athletes throughout this next chapter of their leadership journey," said SW Regional Director, Kinshasa Garrett.
