COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina seniors Chris Campbell and Erin Fedewa have been named to the 2012 SEC Track and Field Community Service Team as announced by the league office.
The league sponsors a Community Service Team for each of its 20 league-sponsored sports, looking to highlight a male and female athlete from each school who gives back to his community through superior service efforts.

A member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Campbell has spent time reading to children at area schools as a part of "Cocky's Reading Express", has volunteered at the Columbia Ronald McDonald House and helped repair and build homes with "Homeworks for America".

A member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, Campbell has also been appointed Chief Justice of the Constitutional Council over USC Judicial Affairs, and earned the Confucius Institute Educational Grant, given by the Chinese Government to allow foreign students to study in China.
Fedewa has spent her entire career at South Carolina as an active member of the service corps. In 2012, she received a $9,000 grant from The Carolina Leadership Initiative to go toward providing South Carolina with its first-ever carbon neutral sporting event after co-founding with one other person the Green Initiative Committee for student-athletes at South Carolina. She has spent time at South Carolina as a member of Students Engaged in Aquatic Sciences, serving as the education outreach chair where she organized and attended education outreach events at local elementary schools to teach children about marine conservation. A member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, she has volunteered at the Harvest Hope Food Bank and the Manantial de Vida Lutheran Church after-school tutor program in addition to serving as Community Service Chairperson at South Carolina's Lutheran Campus Ministry where she organized Bible studies and games with children at Epworth's Children's Home.
