Brooke Copeland Named to SEC Community Service Team

Florida’s unquestionable leader with her dedication and time within the Gainesville area and beyond is Brooke Copeland, who today was named to the 2015-16 Southeastern Conference Women’s Basketball Community Service Team, the league office announced Wednesday.

Copeland, just a sophomore, was honored for the second consecutive year.

A sampling of the various events and locations Copeland has volunteered her time:

  • GiGi’s Playhouse
  • Pediatrics Visits at Shands Hospital
  • Reads to young students at Williams Elementary School
  • Stomp the Swamp
  • Stadium Tour – Balance 180
  • One Room School House
  • Infusion room
  • Hoggetown 5K
  • Girls Place
  • Dreamer’s Foundation Prom
  • Climb for Cancer
  • Caleb’s Pitch
  • Baby Gator’s Field Day

Last month, one of Copeland’s many highlights in the community was brought to light by a story published in The Independent Florida Alligator and can be found here:

In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the SEC once again highlighted a Community Service Team for women’s basketball for the 2015-16 season.

This marks the 18th year for the SEC Community Service Team for women’s basketball as well as for men’s basketball. All league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men’s and women’s sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football Community Service Team in 1994.
