BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Ole Miss seniors Mary Ashton Nall and Alex Nichols were named to the 2014 Southeastern Conference Community Service Teams for women’s and men’s track and field, respectively.

An All-American in the heptathlon and a decorated scholar in the classroom, Nall has been equally as dedicated to helping members of her community. The Auburn, Alabama, native is an active participant in Reading with the Rebels, a program in which Ole Miss athletes read and mentor local elementary school students. She has helped with More than a Meal, serving food and helping tutor children of needy families from 2012-14. She was a fundraising volunteer at St. Jude Hospital, participating in a letter-writing campaign, and the Carson Pitcock Foundation from 2010-14. She has been a Mississippi Blood Drive donor from 2010-14. Other efforts include Adopt-A-Basket, Shoebox Foundation for South American children, Toys for Tots, Feed the Hunger Pack-a-Thon, Race Reconciliation project, Martin Luther King Day and Mississippi tornado relief. She served as a counselor for the 2014 Girls in Sports Day Camp and 2014 Move Mississippi. She’s been a Lafayette County Foster Family sponsor the last two years. A three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member and a 2013 USTFCCCA All-Academic, she was named to the 2013-14 Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges. She has also served as a student assistant in the Ole Miss Athletics Media Relations department.

Nichols has also been an active participant in Reading with the Rebels and More than a Meal. He has helped with Toys for Tots, Adopt-A-Basket, Martin Luther King Day and Mississippi tornado relief. The Mobile, Alabama, native is a two-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member and was named to the 2013-14 Who’s Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges.
