Donovan Recognized on SEC Community Service Team

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – University of Georgia senior student-athlete Meghan Donovan has been recognized on the 2019 Southeastern Conference Volleyball Community Service Team. 
“Meghan is not only a tremendous leader and mentor in our program but also in her community,” said head coach Tom Black. “She is very deserving of recognition of her work and dedication on the court and off the court.” 
Donovan is an active member in the University of Georgia and Athens communities. She has helped raise over a thousand dollars for the Athens Area Homeless Shelter by hosting percentage nights and organizing a charity event with Living Hope Church. She is a partner with the Clarke County Mentor Program, working with local school children, focusing on the importance of education. Donovan has volunteered time with Extra Special People and Special Olympics of Georgia. 
Her community outreach began long before arriving in Athens as she participated in many events in her hometown of St. Louis, Mo., including working as a volunteer at Camp Independence of Barnes Jewish Hospital where she spent time working with children with cerebral palsy for four years. 
Donovan has been named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll the first three years of her career along with earning a spot on the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll in 2016. She has also been a Dean’s List and J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics honoree throughout her career for her work in the classroom. Donovan is an active member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and Georgia’s Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) program for high-achieving student-athletes.
Last week, Donovan earned her first All-SEC accolade. This season, she became Georgia’s modern rally scoring assists leader, ranking third all-time at Georgia. She also recorded her 1,000th-career dig, becoming the 14th all-time member and only the third Bulldog setter in the Double Grand Club.
