Gunter Named to SEC Community Service Team

BATON ROUGE – LSU gymnastics senior Olivia Gunter has been named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team for her efforts in the Baton Rouge area, the league office announced. 

Gunter has been a vocal team lead over the years, which has been the most successful period in school history. She serves as a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and was selected to participate in the 2020 NCAA Career in Sports Forum.

The Louisiana native has completed many community service projects in Baton Rouge, including McMain’s Wheels to Succeed, the Blue-Ribbon Soiree benefiting prostate cancer research and volunteer work at LA Key School and Gardere Elementary School. She has also helped organize and put on family-friendly events like the annual LSU Halloween Boozar and Spook ‘N’ Rowe. Gunter has volunteered for organizations like the children’s Knock-Knock Museum, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, and the Big Buddy Program.

The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 21 league sponsored sports. The Community Service Team looks to highlight a student-athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.

Gunter and the LSU Tigers will compete for the program’s fourth-straight SEC title in Huntsville on Saturday night. The meet will be televised on SEC Network at 7 p.m. CT.
