Columbia, S.C. – The Southeastern Conference recently announced its Good Works Team for volleyball and South Carolina’s Nicole Miller was among the honorees. The Good Works Team highlights a student-athlete from each school in each sport who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.
In two years, the Stockton, Calif. native has staffed and served a Thanksgiving meal at the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen and has been involved in the Harvest Hope Food Drive. The sophomore outside hitter/middle blocker also has volunteered for Home Works of South Carolina and Day of Service, where she helps rebuild homes of the elderly in Columbia. In August, Miller and the volleyball team visited Palmetto Richland Children’s Hospital and spent time with the patients.
This marks the first year for the SEC to sponsor a Volleyball Good Works Team. Joining Miller on the team is Kory Tull (Alabama), Jennifer Haaser (Arkansas), Brittney Diaz (Auburn), Aruy Cruz (Florida), Luresa Forsythe (Georgia), Liz McCaslin (Kentucky), Beth Cowley (LSU), Karla Zschau (Ole Miss), Tanika Taylor (Mississippi State) and Michelle Piantadosi (Tennessee).
