Aboya will represent UCLA at the NCAA National Leadership Conference

March 29, 2007

LOS ANGELES - UCLA sophomore center/forward Alfred Aboya has been selected to represent the University at the annual NCAA National Leadership Conference, scheduled for May 27 - 31 in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. He was selected from four nominated UCLA student-athletes by an NCAA committee.

The NCAA National Leadership Conference provides NCAA student-athletes with a forum to openly discuss issues that may affect them on their campuses and in their communities, while also providing them with the opportunity to enhance their leadership, communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills. The leadership conference also promotes better communication among student-athletes, coaches, administrators, faculty and communities. The five-day leadership conference consists of daily exercises and activities to help the student-athletes develop as individuals and as contributing members to a group.

The conference is an outreach of the successful CHAMPS/Life Skills Program and involves close to 325 student-athletes each year who compete in fall, winter and spring sports in Divisions I, II and III. Many of the student-athletes who participate are members of their conference and campus Student-Athlete Advisory Committees (SAACs). Each NCAA member institution that has a CHAMPS/Life Skills Program is encouraged to nominate student-athletes from their campus for the annual leadership conference.
