ATHENS, Ga. — University of Georgia junior gymnast Rachael Lukacs has been named to the 2021 Southeastern Conference Gymnastics Community Service Team, the conference announced Monday.
For the third consecutive year, Lukacs, an all-arounder from Hillsborough, New Jersey, stands out as Georgia’s leader in Community Service. With her bubbly personality and genuine heart for others, Lukacs goes above and beyond her call of duty to the UGA and Athens community.
She is heavily involved with Extra Special People (ESP) and volunteers at swim practice at least two hours a week on top of hosting the Special Olympics Gymnastics group in the facility each week. She is involved with “Reading with the Stars”, reading to young children at a local elementary school.
Lukacs has given her time to the animal shelter and the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, donating and packing food, as well as volunteering at numerous marathons and those of the like around the Athens area. She is a devoted member of the Georgia and Athens community and her efforts will continue to spread as she grows as a student-athlete at UGA.
