Saad was one of only seven young people in Florida to be chosen as a "Potential Exemplar" for the ACT 2015-2016 College and Career readiness campaign. This ACT sponsored campaign celebrates exemplary employers, community colleges, high schools, and high school seniors who promote or exemplify readiness for college and careers in states across the country and culminates with one National Exemplar per category,  who is then honored at the ACT National Gala for College and Career Readiness in June 2016 in Washington, DC.
