Making a Splash In and Out of the Pool: Harvard Swimmer Abby Carr Fights For Athletes' Voices on HUA

Sophomore butterfly/backstroke swimmer Abby Carr has proven herself in the pool. But the Maryland native wanted to serve as an example that athletes can compete off of the field, too. Her longing for an athlete’s perspective in student government inspired her to run in the HUA’s inaugural elections in April. In her campaign, she committed to prioritizing issues pertinent to Harvard’s student-athlete community. Then, during the election, she earned the most votes in the HUA’s ranked-choice voting system, becoming one of the initial members of the organization’s nine-person leadership.
