Worcester State University Senior, Guard Michel’le St. Pierre is one of 10 women named to the 2014 Allstate WBCA Good Works Team - an off-the-court honor recognizing college basketball student-athletes for their community involvement.
St. Pierre is a Seekonk native. Her community service resume includes:
- 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 sixth grade girl, who is battling a rare childhood cancer (that St. Pierre has taken under her wing) in the hospital, supporting her during chemo, connecting with her on social media and participating in the family’s fundraisers
- Serving in the Army National Guard and has been activated for five natural disasters and provides emergency services during the past three years, including this year’s Boston Marathon Bombing
From this year’s list of 84 nominees the final team was selected by a special voting panel headlined by former University of Tennessee student-athlete, Olympic gold medalist and WNBA star Tamika Catchings. Through the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team, student-athletes are recognized for their commitment to enriching the lives of others while contributing to the greater good of their communities.
Members of the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team will be invited to the 2014 NCAA Women’s Final Four in Nashville where they will participate in a community project benefiting the city.
