Hubbard, Granger selected as ACC Student-Athlete Representatives
The Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Monday morning three student-athlete representatives from its member institutions who will hold voting power on proposed NCAA rule changes under the Division I autonomy process.
N.C. State softball’s Harli Hubbard will participate with Duke’s Madison Granger (track and field/cross country), and Miami’s Demetrius Jackson (football) as members of the ACC Autonomy Committee, be invited to attend various ACC governance meetings and participate as members of the voting delegation at the 2018 NCAA convention. She is the first student-athlete from N.C. State to be selected for this process.
The NCAA Division I Board of Directors voted in August of 2014 to restructure how schools and conferences govern themselves, paving the way for student-athletes to have a voice – and a vote – at every level of decision-making. A council, established as part of that process, is responsible for day-to-day operations of the division and includes two seats for student-athletes, two for faculty and four for commissioners
