CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern Women's Basketball Team was chosen as the 2017 recipient of the South Carolina Student Organization Service Achievement Award as announced by the South Carolina Campus Compact review committee and Head Coach Fred Applin on Wednesday afternoon.

"South Carolina Campus Compact review committee was amazed by the level of passion for civic engagement being demonstrated on CSU's campus," said CSU Assistant Dean of Student Services Dr. Hester Young. 

"South Carolina Campus Compact is in awe of the commitment to community engagement and support exhibited by the Women's Basketball Team at Charleston Southern University led by their coach, Fred Applin," said Executive Director for South Carolina Campus Compact Jessica Lynn, MSW.  "Seeing a group of students who have such full schedules with academics and athletics spend their free time to help others in need is inspiring. Keep up the great work!"
