In addition to performing well in the classroom and enjoying success in their athletic competition, Florida Southern student-athletes have found time to contribute more than 2,100 hours of community service during the 2011-12 school year.
This year, the athletic department fall term GPA was 3.20, and every team sport posted at least a .500 record.
In terms of community service, the activities in which the student-athletes were involved covered a wide range of service in the Lakeland community, including participating in various fundraising events for worthy causes; hosting groups on campus; collecting and donating needed items, such as food, clothing and toys for charitable organizations; donating blood; and helping clean, paint and repair damaged homes or facilities.
"Not only do our student-athletes excel in the classroom and in their sport, but their service and hours contributed for these many projects is a direct reflection of their development as well-rounded individuals who are more than willing to give back to the community," said Director of Athletics Pete Meyer. "We are very proud of all of them."
