NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt junior and double major Regan Clay was named to the SEC Women’s Track & Field Community Service team on Wednesday.
Among Clay’s community service involvement around Nashville, she has participated in annual Field Day and Holiday Party festivities benefitting Buena Vista Elementary students as well as Trick or Treat with the Greeks where she handed out candy and provided Nashville communities and children a fun, safe space for Halloween.
Clay and the women’s track and field program also sponsor a Miracle Child, Abby, who suffers from retinopathy of prematurity and is legally blind. Clay helped to raise money for Abby and the Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
Clay’s community service also extends internationally as she traveled with Soles4Souls to Morocco where she distributed shoes to local families and children.
Clay, who is majoring in economics as well as medicine, health, and society, is a three-year letterwinner and ranks among the program’s all-time top 10 in three events.
All league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004 with at-large teams for men’s and women’s sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football Community Service Team in 1994.
