OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss senior outfielder Natalie Nimmo has been named to the Southeastern Conference Softball Community Service Team for her work in the Ole Miss and Oxford communities, the league office announced Monday.
The executive committee chair of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee at Ole Miss, Nimmo has worked hard and devoted countless hours of her time both on and off the diamond, including spending a lot of time in and around the Ole Miss and Oxford communities.
A journalism major, Nimmo visited the Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., during the preseason. There, she played games with the kids, drew pictures with them and visited with others. On Martin Luther King Jr., Day, Nimmo, along with her teammates, visited the National Civil Rights Museum where she helped with the flow of traffic throughout the museum, answered questions, helped with ticket booths and other needs around the museum.
She also participated in other projects around Oxford, including Be a Champion and Read, Adopt-A-Basket, Reading with the Rebels, Rebels Making a Difference and coached at softball clinics.
Nimmo finished her senior season with seven RBIs on seven hits in 21 games played.
The SEC sponsors community service teams for all 21 league-sponsored sports. The community service team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.
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.
