Henderson Named to the SEC Community Service Team

Baton Rouge, La. – LSU’s Courtney Henderson was named to the SEC Community Service Team for the sport of soccer on Tuesday morning.

She served as LSU’s SAAC Representative during the 2020-21 academic year. Courtney has led the LSU soccer team into great community engagement initiatives. After learning about The Parole Project, she coordinated a game day experience for previously incarcerated men as a positive and uplifting step as they re-enter the community.

She helped in organizing several initiatives that the LSU soccer team completed this year. She partook in making COVID care packages for retirement homes while also making encouraging cards for healthcare workers during the pandemic. She participated in two virtual events – the Big Buddy Dance Off and St. Jude Virtual Walk – while also making tie dye blankets for a local women’s shelter.

She was able to help in coaching with the PARDS soccer club in Denham Springs, and she also coordinated the making of a workout video for a local school. And lastly, she helped the LSU soccer team create a body positivity video in the month of April.

Henderson, a native of Rodgers, Minnesota, played in 18 of LSU’s 19 matches this season including 14 starts. She played a total of 1,042 minutes on the season and picked up an assist in LSU’s 2-0 win over Alabama in the first round of the SEC Tournament.
