One Giant Leap

Kendall Spencer, chair of the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), isn't afraid to jump into the unknown. After completing his career as a national champion track and field student-athlete at New Mexico, Spencer is now training to be an Olympic athlete while also researching neuroscience at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is also an accomplished hip-hop dancer, having performed with the Funkanometry SF professional dance company. At New Mexico, he taught hip-hop dancing as a fundraiser for a suicide prevention program.
