Fayetteville, NC – Fayetteville State University senior cheerleader Bria Perkins (Eden, NC) has been elected the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Vice President for 2017. Perkins also serves as the vice president for the Fayetteville State SAAC.

As vice president, the elected officer must be familiar with all the responsibilities of the president and must be ready to preside when called upon. At all times, the vice president should work in close cooperation with the president.

“I’m very proud and excited for Bria and this opportunity,” said FSU SAAC Advisor and head cheerleading coach Dr. LaWanda Miller. “She is outgoing, energetic, and puts forth her best effort to all endeavors; I believe she will truly be an asset to the CIAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.”
