SALB Mission Statement:
The Student Athlete Leadership Board works to unite the Dulaney community through our passion for athletics and rally support from the student body.
Created in 2013 by Athletic Director Rich Reed, the Student Athlete Leadership Board has added additional energy and enthusiasm to Dulaney Athletics and its tradition of success. Student-athletes are nominated by their coaches for exemplifying qualities of leadership on their teams and in the classroom. The Student Athlete Leadership Board’s membership has grown to over 100 dedicated student-athletes from each team who all serve as pristine examples of what being a Dulaney Lion is all about.
SALB works to unite the community through passion for athletics and rally support from the student body. While the general assembly consists of over 100 members, SALB has a more concrete board of 18 members that represents underclassmen and upperclassmen. The board coordinates spirit events and creates a forum for student athletes to voice their concerns or opinions about things occurring in the athletic department.
Among the board’s greatest achievements would be getting the One Love Foundation involved within the school. The Foundation works to educated young people on the warning signs of abusive relationships. It offers a 90-minute workshop, which effectively relates to young people while at the same time providing a substantial education on the warning signs of unhealthy relationships. The board organized a workshop that was open for any SALB members to attend this past fall.
Additionally, the board holds monthly leadership meetings that all members are required to attend. Coaches in the athletics department sign up for a date to come and speak to SALB regarding a specific characteristic of leadership they find important. The coaches make the meetings consistently hands on and engaging.
Although SALB membership does not include the entire 1,100 student-athlete population at Dulaney, those who have been chosen to be apart of it are clear leaders who are actively engaged in the community and have proven to be excellent example to others.
