Student Activities Association Executive Council

Executive Director

Caroline Parnell

Hi y’all! I’m a senior hospitality management major from Batesville, Mississippi. This year I have the absolute honor of serving as the Executive Director of SAA! I have been blessed to work with the student activities association since my freshman year. It was the first student organization I joined and has been one of my biggest blessing at Ole Miss. SAA is a place where anyone and everyone is welcomed to come and connect with other students. I am so excited to work with our executive council to plan events for the Ole Miss family this year. I am forever grateful for this organization and the impact it has had on me. Hotty Toddy!

Associate Director of External Relations

Taylor Lampkin

Hello everyone! I’m Taylor Lampkin, a senior biology pre-med major from Terry, MS. I decided to get involved in SAA because I noticed how welcoming the committee members were to all of the students coming to events. I knew that creating events for all students on campus was something that I would enjoy. My freshman year I attended Ole Miss Idol and I was amazed by all of the talented singers that performed. I was apart of the entertainment committee for one year and decided to become a Co-Director for 360. I enjoyed committee 360 so much because we reached out to groups that need specific programming such as freshmen, transfer students, and International students. As Associate director of External operations, my goal is to partner with smaller organizations so that more students feel welcomed on campus. I look forward to seeing more diversity in upcoming events throughout the year. Hotty Toddy!

Associate Director of Internal Relations

Hey Ole Miss! I am a senior from Hattiesburg, Mississippi majoring in Elementary Education. This year, I have the privilege of serving as Associate Director of Internal Operations. I got involved in SAA’s Homecoming Committee sophomore year, and I had the honor of serving as Co-Director of Homecoming my junior year. I love that SAA provides a variety of unique and creative events that appeal to all students. My favorite SAA memory is when I dressed up as Katy Perry to hand out corndogs before the LSU football game! My goal for this year is to assist in providing fun and inclusive events for all students by offering support to our amazing SAA committee members. Hotty Toddy!!
