Sunseri Named 2021-22 Female Brad Davis SEC Community Service Award Winner

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – LSU Senior softball student-athlete Shelbi Sunseri was announced as a 2021-22 Brad Davis Community Service Award winner announced by the Southeastern Conference (SEC).

Each of the 14 SEC member institutions had a male and female winner selected that are now nominees for the Male and Female Brad Davis Community Service Leaders of the Year award announced later in May.

The school winners will each receive a $5,000 post-graduate scholarship, and the male and female Community Service Leaders of the Year will each receive a $10,000 post-graduate scholarship, provided by the SEC.

On the diamond, Sunseri is a NFCA All-American and All-SEC selection who ranks No. 3 in the LSU Softball program with 47 career home runs, including 14 homers this season. Sunseri also pitches and has 38 career wins, with a 2.33 ERA, 258 strikeouts and 10 shutouts.

In the community this year alone, Sunseri has 44 hours of community service completed where she has assisted with organizations such as Geaux Teal and FCA and has also coordinated and participated in team efforts such as hurricane cleanups, writing letters to hospital patients, and MLK Day of Service.

The SEC Community Service Post-Graduate Scholarship is named for former Associate Commissioner Brad Davis. Davis succumbed to cancer on March 2, 2006.
