Every week the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) of UNC Asheville will highlight a student-athlete who has achieved success off the field, course, or court.
This week we are highlighting Clair Powell, a senior on the women's cross country and track teams. Clair recently left her home in North Carolina for Jyvaskyla University in Finland where she will be studying abroad this summer. After her classes end, she will spend some time traveling Scandinavia to expand her knowledge on life away from the United States.
Along with studying abroad, Clair will be starting an undergraduate research project in the department of Health and Wellness Promotion. Her research will center on the proprioception and balance in older adults. After she graduates from UNC Asheville in the spring of 2013, she aspires to get her doctorate in physical therapy.
