FAYETTEVILLE – Senior Amanda Caldwell was named to the 2011 Southeastern Conference Softball Community Service Team for the second consecutive year. The team was announced by the conference office on Wednesday.
Caldwell currently serves as the president of the Arkansas Chapter of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has been a member for three years. Caldwell has been extremely involved with community service and other outreaches on campus, including the Lift Up America event for the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank where Arkansas set a record for the best participation by a single university.
The senior received a year-long internship with Colgate-Palmolive in NWA where she worked with the category management team analyzing consumer data and sales. She spent 10 days in Honduras in 2008 doing mission work and will spend time as a missionary in Guatemala in the summer of 2011. Caldwell has organized community service projects for the Razorbacks softball team such as Book Hogs, where student-athletes read and interact with elementary school students in the community.
Caldwell is the vice president of Fellowship of Christian Athletes and was selected as a Big Sister with Northwest Arkansas’ Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
Her senior season on the field was highlighted by her first career-grand slam against Mississippi State on March 20. The bomb marked her second home run as a Razorback.
Arkansas wraps the 2011 season on Thursday, May 5, at Bogle Park at 3 p.m. against UMKC.
