Rossett Named to Community Service Team

Vanderbilt forward instrumental in volunteering efforts

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Rebecca Rossett was named to the 2019 SEC Community Service Team, the league announced Tuesday.

Throughout her time at Vanderbilt, Rossett has always been looking for ways to give back. In just the fall semester of 2019, she already has 70 hours of community service.

Most notably, Rossett has orchestrated the drive for Vanderbilt soccer to adopt a Miracle Child from the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. She’s coordinated and set up the Commodores with their Miracle Child, Maddy. Maddy and her family were on the field during Vanderbilt’s warm ups against Texas A&M. Maddy hung out with Rossett and the team pregame.

Rossett set up a donation form for Dance Marathon with an end goal of $3,000.

Rossett has helped orchestrate a Field Day benefitting Buena Vista Elementary and a holiday party benefitting Buena Vista Elementary. She’s participated in Harris Hillman Classroom Aid as well as the Salvation Army (food preparation, after school tutoring and mentoring).

Other community service projects she’s participated in have been the Soles4Souls donation drives, Hurricane Harvey donation drive, the Bridge Ministry, Vanderbilt University Dance Marathon, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital and West Nashville Dream Center (food distribution and interacting with kids).
