AFTER 100 DAYS...
message from the president of sfaa
Greetings Saints Friskies Nation,
Monday, September 4, 2017 marked 100 days since you elected the current leadership team. When we began our term, rebuilding the organization became one of our top priorities. We have expanded the leadership team by filling all or some vacancies on the following committees: Finance, Planning, Audit, Regulatory Affairs, and Elections. We also embarked on fulfilling the agenda we set, and below is a summary of what we have accomplished so far:
Over a lifetime, few men are affiliated with a single institution. Say the name Psycho in any Liberian gathering and basketball immediately comes to mind. Stories pour, memories abound. Everyone he's ever touched has a story of how he made them feel.
