RAZORBACKS IN THE COMMUNITY

Being a part of the Northwest Arkansas community is an important part of being a Razorback. This ranges from team visits to area nursing homes to volunteer work with Race for the Cure and Special Olympics. The Razorback volleyball team finished second among all of the university’s teams in the Lee Spencer Cup standings, a department initiative that awards Arkansas’ teams based on academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, career development and service. But that’s just a small part of the Razorbacks community service. Players visit area schools to read to youngsters in the school library. Arkansas is a charter member of the “Bring a Girl to the Game� promotion for National Women’s and Girls in Sport Day. The regional Girl Scout troops are involved in several projects, including Girl Scout Day, for many team sports like basketball, volleyball, men’s and

women’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis and softball. For the second consecutive year in conjuction with their spring offseason schedule, the Razorbacks hosted a clinic at Barnhill Arena with Special Olympics Arkansas (pictured below). More than 130 youth and adult players along with the Arkansas coaching staff and student-athletes were in attendance at the event. Arkansa also participated in the organization’s Area 3 Games in April. “We were extremely lucky to have the opportunity to host the Special Olympics event,� head coach Robert Pulliza said. “Since we have been at Arkansas, we’ve been trying to figure out a way to be involved with the organization and we are very thankful to Tonja McCone for helping make that possible.� The volleyball team also paired with national organization Feed My

Starving Children to help pack meals for those in need, volunteered during the Walk for Love and takes visits to local veterans’ hospitals in the Northwest Arkansas area. Including Arkansas’ involvement in Book Hogs, Lift Up America, Sweat Hawgs and Together We CAN, the Razorbacks teamed with the Northwest Arkansas community in June 2010 to pack more than 1.4 million meals for Razorback Relief: Operation Haiti.
