Dr. Melissa Scotch, parent and adjunct professor, said, “Saints Weekend and, in particular, participating in the Parents Leadership Council is about being present in my son’s life and having fun connecting with other families.”

Moms, dads, siblings, friends, and students danced to Space Jams beats while enjoying a tailgating cookout before the men’s soccer game. The crowd cheered our soccer team on as they beat North Georgia 5-3 for the win!
