Georgia Tech's women's basketball team fell in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to LSU. That said, one of its members still found a way to this weekend's Final Four games. Shayla Bivins was named to the 2014 Allstate Women's Basketball Coaches' Association (WCBA) Good Works Team back in February, and on Monday spent time at Vanderbilt's hospital giving back in celebration of the women's Final Four this weekend. She, along with 9 other players from across the country, received awards during Sunday's games due to incredible acts of community service and charity. More info from the press release is below.
On the eve of the 2014 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship, members of the Allstate Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Good Works Team, one of college basketball's most distinguished community service award, brought their passion for volunteerism to Nashville and smiles to patients' faces during a special visit to the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. WNBA star and Tennessee college basketball legend Tamika Catchings also participated in the special event.
In partnership with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, the second annual Allstate WBCA Good Works Day paired Catchings with Good Works Team members to help assemble and distribute special wellness kits to patients in celebration of the 2014 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship.
Congratulations Shayla! We're proud to have you representing the Institute!
