Vasilyuk Named to SEC Women’s Tennis Community Service Team
Birmingham, Ala. – LSU women’s tennis senior Luba Vasilyuk was named to the Southeastern Conference Women’s Tennis Community Service Team on Wednesday for her volunteering efforts in the Baton Rouge community.
Vasilyuk was one of 14 student-athletes selected for the team, part of the SEC’s continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond their fields of competition.
The Dallas, Texas native represented the Tigers well in the community over the course of the academic year. One project Vasilyuk took lead personally and getting her teammates involved in was LSU’s Big Buddy Toy Drive. The Big Buddy program in Baton Rouge aims to build a community and create mentoring relationships for the youth across the city. The annual toy drive is aimed to help families in struggling situations have gifts for these kids during the holiday season.
Vasilyuk also spent time volunteering at the Charles R. Kelly Community Center, particularly helping with produce distribution to the community. The Charles R. Kelly Community Center offers produce to the community on a first come, first serve basis. Vasilyuk helped by sorting the goods, packing them into bags, and then helped distribute the goods to those who came to visit.
The senior will graduate from LSU in May with a bachelor’s degree in Information Systems and Decision Sciences and a minor in Communications.
