Dorsey named to SEC community service team

NASHVILLE – Junior defender Nia Dorsey was named to the SEC Community Service Team, it was announced today.
Dorsey has been involved in a numerous amount of community service programs during her time at Vanderbilt. Over this past summer, she volunteered at a nonprofit in Nashville called Room In the Inn.
She worked at the support desk to provide people with information over the counter medication, toiletries and socks. She also worked the lunch shifts to provide meals to the homeless and assist other volunteer groups.
She was so inspired that she has her teammates collect toiletries from hotels every time we have an away game so that she can take them to Room In the Inn. She is a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and she has gotten other teams to do the same thing when they travel.
In the spring of her sophomore year, she volunteered once a week at a nonprofit in Nashville called Harvest Hands that focuses on education and empowering young members of the community. She mentored numerous 1st graders in 1-on-1 subject tutoring and homework assistance.
At the end of her freshman season, she went on a mission trip to Costa Rica where she helped complete construction projects at an orphanage.
She even organized athletic activities and participated in sports with the children at the orphanage. She helped serve the food at a soup kitchen for Nicaraguan refugees, too.
