JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Nov. 26, 2013) – In the midst of the holiday season, members of the ETSU women’s basketball team took time Tuesday to give back to the community and provide service to its supporters from throughout Johnson City.

“Thanksgiving week is the perfect time for our team to give back to the Johnson City community,” said first-year ETSU head coach Brittney Ezell. “We, as a program, have a multitude of things to be thankful for and what better ways to express our gratitude than to have our players serve others.”

Student-athletes Maria Bond (Macon, Ga.), Cara Bowling (Elizabethton, Tenn.) Tiana Burley (Camilla, Ga.) and Brianna McQueen (Jonesboro, Ga.) provided time Tuesday as campus hosts for the fifth-graders from Andrew Johnson Elementary inside ETSU’s D.P. Culp Center.

Later in the day, Destiny Mitchell (Bluffton, Ga.), Ashley Miles (Bowie, Md.), Shamauria Bridges (Miramar, Fla.) and Adriane Vaughan (Midlothian, Va.) volunteered their efforts as baggers for the United Way at Food City near campus.

According to Ezell, these community service efforts are critical components in the progression of the program itself and the student-athletes that represent it.

“I am so proud of the growth of our program and of the personal development of the young women in it,” said Ezell. “Our student-athletes are given a tremendous opportunity to represent ETSU, so making time in our schedules to serve our community is truly a joy and an honor.”

The Blue and Gold will have some time off over the Thanksgiving holiday before returning to Brooks Gym on Friday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. to face the Alabama A&M Bulldogs.
