BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Arkansas women’s track and field redshirt junior Taliyah Brooks and Arkansas men’s track and field redshirt senior Eric Janise have been named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team, announced Thursday afternoon.
Recognized leaders on their nationally-ranked teams Brooks and Janise also lead their peers off the track as members of the Razorback Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), an organization which Brooks governs as acting president. Through Razorback SAAC Brooks and Janise enact change in the Northwest Arkansas community, coordinating food drives, educating children at local elementary schools and volunteering their time at shelters and various events.
Both athletes continue to be vital assets to the Arkansas men’s and women’s track and field team as national qualifiers in the heptathlon (Brooks) and 4-x-400-meter relay (Janise). They will cap their respective seasons next weekend in Eugene, Oregon at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Championships.
