Kneebone to serve at health and safety summit

Henderson State University General Counsel Elaine Kneebone has been invited to serve at the NCAA Division II Health and Safety Summit in Indianapolis, Indiana. Kneebone is a 1997 Henderson State University graduate and earned her juris doctor degree at the University of Arkansas – Fayetteville School of Law.

The summit is designed to explore the challenges that face Division II schools in relation to student-athlete health and safety as well as to begin to create a plan to face these challenges. Among the possible topics of discussion are concussions and Title IX.

Division II athletics are focused on helping student-athletes find the balance between succeeding on the field of competition while achieving academic success and preparing for future contribution to their communities.

“At Henderson State University we are focused on what is best for our students, their safety and their success,” Kneebone said. “I think it is appropriate that the NCAA invited Henderson to have a seat at the table for this important summit. The issues to be discussed will impact our students, as well as the welfare of student-athletes across NCAA Division II.”
