Every week the UNC Asheville Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will highlight a student-athlete who is achieving success on and off the field, course, or court. This week we are highlighting Alyska Kalmeijer, the 2012-13 SAAC President.
Alyska is a rising senior and is a member of the women's cross country and track teams. This summer she will be working as an intern at The Mediation Center in downtown Asheville. She hopes this experience will assist in making Asheville a better and stronger community. She will also serve as the Recreation Director at the Smoky Mountain Running Camp in July on the UNC Asheville campus.
This coming year, Alyska is hoping to continue her internship at The Mediation Center as she finishes her undergraduate degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. After graduation, she will explore the possibility of attending law school to study juvenile law.
