Seekonk native and Worcester State University guard, Michel’le St. Pierre, was announced today as a nominee for the 2014 Allstate WBCA Good Works Team®.

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. 

St. Pierre boasts an impressive resume of community service accomplishments, which include:

Initiating the women’s basketball’s involvement with national organization TeamIMPACT;

Cleaning, painting and refurbishing the local elementary school’s library;

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

Serving in the Army National Guard and has been activated for five natural disasters and provides emergency services during the past 3 years, including this year’s Boston Marathon Bombing.

From this year’s list of 84 nominees, a final roster of 10 award recipients - comprised of five players from the Division I level and five players from Divisions II, III and the NAIA - will be announced in February.
