The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) announced today a new strategic initiative aimed at telling the story of affiliated colleges, programs, coaches and student-athletes. The first-ever 'NJCAA Day' will occur on Thursday, October 19th nationwide. The NJCAA office is calling for member colleges to display and publicize their points of pride at member institutions.
The 'NJCAA Day' program comes on the heels of the widely-successful 'Welcome Back Week', which allowed member schools to celebrate the start of their academic year and athletic seasons this past August.
