OXFORD, Miss. – While senior libero Morgan Springer has left her mark on the record books at Ole Miss over the last four years, it is her efforts in the Oxford and Ole Miss community that earned Springer recognition on Tuesday when she was named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service team.
The league office released the 2011 selections to its annual Community Service team and Springer was the Ole Miss representative on the list.
“This is an award that really shows the type of person Morgan is and what she’s meant to our program on and off the court," said Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin. "Her hard work goes far beyond the volleyball court. She’s been a pillar of the Ole Miss and Oxford community since she got here.”
Through the course of her career at Ole Miss, Springer has been active in the local community by participating in many varied outreach projects.
In her time with the volleyball team, Springer has participated in such community service projects as Reading With The Rebels, the SEC Together We Can Canned Food Drive and other food drives to benefit local food pantries as well as participating in the Rebel Re-Run program to collect athletic shoes for needy youths.
Springer has also been an active member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council in her time with the Rebels. The senior also participated in clean up and outreach projects in local communities following the tornados that struck the mid-South this past spring.
Springer is working towards the completion of her undergraduate degree in Psychology and holds a 3.78 GPA. She has been a three-time selection to the SEC Academic Honor Roll and is the all-time dig leader at Ole Miss with 1,631 digs for her career.
