For the second year, Allstate and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) are recognizing a select group of women’s college basketball student-athletes who stand out for their charitable achievements and community involvement. The players nominated for this prestigious honor are committed to enriching the lives of others while contributing to the greater good of their communities.

Reading books to grade school students at Worcester Community Reading Day;
Visiting a local 6th grade girl, who is battling a rare childhood cancer (that St. Pierre has taken under her wing) in the hospital, supporting her doing chemo, connecting with her on social media and participating in the family’s fund-raisers; and

and provides emergency services during the past 3 years, including this year’s
Boston Marathon Bombing.
From this year’s list of 84
