Student Activities Association Executive Council

Executive Director

Carl Tart

Hi y’all! My name is Carl, and I am a senior Allied Health Studies major from Yazoo City, MS. I am the current Executive Director. I served as a member of the Entertainment Committee my sophomore year and Co-Director of Entertainment my junior year! This organization has impacted my life significantly. Two of my core values are experience and inclusivity. I am delighted to serve as Director of this organization, keeping every student in mind as we plan, organize, and execute events. It is my mission to continue fostering the development of events for students, by students! #88282Forever

Associate Director

Reynolds Spencer

Hey there! My name is Reynolds, and I am a Senior Accounting major from Nashville, Tennessee. I have been fortunate enough to be involved with the Student Activities Association since my Freshman year (2016), when I joined the Entertainment Committee. For the past two years, I served as an Entertainment Co-director before stepping into the Associate Director role for this upcoming year! I have found that SAA serves such a unifying role on this campus and helps make Ole Miss feel like home and not just a place where you take classes. I am so excited about the vision that our fantastic exec has for SAA this year (and beyond), and I encourage you to come out to our events to see for yourself! See you around!

Co-Directors of Special Events

Sabine Horne

Hi there friends! My name is Sabine, and I’m a Junior Public Policy Leadership major from Laurel, MS (still figuring out the minor, but it’s never too late). SAA was actually the first organization I got involved with my freshman year and ever since I’ve been blown away by the love this organization has for our campus. Everyone describes Ole Miss as a family, and families celebrate together! They have movie nights, share meals, celebrate holidays together, and SAA creates spaces for students to do all of those things with each other. Whenever I chat with students at one of our events they all say the same thing- that our events feel like a place where everyone is welcome. That’s really why I love SAA. We create spaces where every single person is welcomed- spaces that are diverse, inclusive, joyful, and everything I hoped my college experience would be. I hope you’ll come to one of our events or apply for committee so you can see for yourself what SAA is all about!

Co-Directors of Special Events

Austin Newcomb

Hey, friends! My name is Austin, and I am a Junior Integrated Market Communications major from Corinth, MS. Being on the Special Events Committee my freshman year  instilled a passion for serving this campus and community. By helping host events for incoming freshman to gathering the community for the Christmas Tree lighting, SAA has shown me that I truly love seeing a smile on people’s face when they come to an event. I am involved with SAA because Oxford has become a home to me and everyone on this campus and in the community have become my family, so I want to give someone that sense of love and community I felt when I first attended SAA events.

Co-Directors of Special Events

Allie Hendry

Hi guys! My name is Allie, and I am a senior Exercise Science major from Tampa, FL. I joined the SAA family a little later than most, but I am fortunate enough to serve this year as a Co-Director of Special Events! SAA has always been an organization on campus that is welcoming and has made me feel a part of Ole Miss. As an out-of-state state that knew no one when I arrived to campus, I was looking for a community that felt like a second home, and SAA does that by constantly striving to put on events that encourage students to have fun and meet new people. Hotty Toddy and go Rebs!

Co-Directors of Homecoming

Ian Pigg

Hey y’all! My name is Ian, and I am a sophomore Public Policy Leadership major from Clifton, TN. SAA is one of my favorite organizations on campus because it creates a bridge from high school to college for so many students, especially those from out-of-state like me. I’m from an extremely small town in Tennessee, and coming in to my freshman year, I knew absolutely no one. When people come into a new environment, they need something familiar to make them comfortable; SAA homecoming did that for me. I served on the Homecoming committee last year and had the absolute time of my life, which is why I’m so excited to spend this next year serving as the Co-Director for Homecoming! It’s going to be great welcoming so many students, alumni, and visitors back to campus for an incredible tradition! Hotty Toddy, Happy Homecoming, and don’t forget to text SAA to 88202 to get updated on all of SAA’s latest events!

Co-Directors of Homecoming

Madison Daniels

Hi, Ole Miss! My name is Madison, and I am a senior Hospitality Management major with a minor in Business and an Emphasis in Event Management. I am from Knoxville, TN and I have been involved with SAA during the past year, serving on the Homecoming Committee. I can’t wait for this year’s Homecoming week and seeing past, current, and former Ole Miss students unite to celebrate a place we all love so dearly. I am so excited for this upcoming year and the privilege of getting to serve as Homecoming Co-Director. Go Rebs and Hotty Toddy!!


Co-Director of Entertainment

Taylor Norwood

Hi everyone! My name is Taylor, and I am a Senior Exercise Science major from Batesville, MS. SAA is one of my most favorite gems on campus. This organization holds a special place in my heart because it is one that joins the administration, staff, and students together for a great time on the Ole Miss campus. During my junior year, I was a part of the entertainment committee for SAA. After serving on this committee, I am elated to serve as a Co-Director for Entertainment. I am even more excited to work with Rose and Imani – I know we have some super fun events in store for the student body!

Co-Director of Entertainment

Rose Remington

Hotty Toddy & Welcome to SAA! My name is Rose, and I am from Clifton, VA. I am a senior majoring in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Wellness and Physical Activity. Having served on the Entertainment and Homecoming Committees the past few years, I’m thrilled to be on the SAA Executive team this year! SAA has played a large role in my college experience on campus and I’m forever grateful for the opportunities SAA has provided. I look forward to meeting new faces and celebrating the Ole Miss community together. Come join the fun at our events and see what the Rebels are all about!

Co-Director of Entertainment

Imani Hines

Hey y’all! My name is Imani, and I am a Senior Exercise Science major from Jackson, MS! Serving on the entertainment committee for two years has brought so much fun and so many opportunities to meet and connect with students from all over! SAA events cater to every student and contribute to an enjoyable college experience that every student should have. Being able to now serve as an Exec member allows me to ensure that the love, happiness, and fun is continuously being brought to you guys! I’m so excited to see what this year holds for SAA, and I cannot wait to meet you all. Fins up and HOTTY TODDY!

Co-Director of Public Relations

Trevor Davis

Hey, Ole Miss! My name is Trevor, and I’m a junior Integrated Marketing Communications major and Digital Media Studies minor from Ocean Springs, MS. I currently serve as Co-Director of Public Relations, and the 2019-2020 school year will be my third year on SAA. I got involved with SAA because I believe that what happens outside the classroom differentiates us from any other university, and SAA has a very impactful role in that regard. I’ve learned that SAA is one of the driving forces behind providing opportunities for Ole Miss students to make this place their own, and I’m honored to be able to contribute to that in whatever way I can. Hotty Toddy!

Co-Director of Public Relations

Chloé Dwyer

Hey y’all! My name is Chloé, and I’m a senior Integrated Marketing Communications major from Southlake, TX. I am serving as Co-Director of Public Relations this year! I joined SAA because I loved attending the events and witnessing the fellowship it brought to the Oxford and University community. I’m so excited to show y’all what we have planned for this school year, Hotty Toddy!
