Displaying Ayanna Tweedy.JPGBOWIE, Md. - On the morning of February 3, 2014, Ayanna Tweedy signed her acceptance papers as the new National Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Representative for the CIAA for the next three years. For the past year in a half, she has served under the leadership of her advisor, Coach Michelle Latimer as Secretary and President for the SAAC committee on Bowie State's campus and wanted to take her leadership to another level. By being elected into this position, one of her main goals that she hopes to achieve is to create different avenues for student-athletes that will increase graduation rates and be able to focus on career settings. "Having an idea of what career you would like to seek before you graduate is the first step into knowing how to you will reach your goal", stated Tweedy. Having a plan B is very valuable for student-athletes to obtain especially when everyone does not make it to the professional level.  Tweedy stated that "Your first mission while being in college is to receive your degree and the second one is to focus on a career; these two items will allow you to stay focused and be successful.

Ms. Tweedy is currently one of the captains and throwers on the Track & Field team and continues to perfect her craft for what she loves. She is also a junior, studying Early Childhood/Special Education and inspiring to be an Educator for higher learning when she graduates. The Chesterfield, Virginia native was raised in a Christian home and became a member of the Spring Creek Baptist Church family. She is the daughter of Edward and Marlene Tweedy and a sister to three siblings; Jason Payne, Yana Penrose, and Yasmine Tweedy. While being very active in the athletic department, she is heavily active on campus as well. She serves as a resident assistant for the community and is an advocate for the student's voice. She is not only a good friend; she is a sister, a daughter, a leader, role model, and a trailblazer for her peers. She is very excited about what God has planned for her next three years in office and will be seeking guidance from above and her administrative leaders.
