LAWERNCEVILLE, Ga. – Centenary’s Ryan Stevens has been named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Male Character and Community Student-Athletes of the Week.

The junior left-hander from Longview, Texas, who served as the baseball representative on the Centenary College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee this past year, will serve as that group’s President in 2014-15.

In addition to his time on the diamond, Stevens has helped to organize as well as participating in the Centenary College Service Week, which is sponsored by the Centenary SAAC. This week-long event gave the student-athletes to interact and assist with various organizations in the Shreveport community.

The school’s 17 intercollegiate programs divided into small groups to lend a helping hand at Common Ground, the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank and Querbes SPAR Recreation Center with service projects that consisted of dinner preparation, helping in the community garden, cleanup projects, tutoring and various other activities.

Centenary College student-athletes totaled 200-plus hours of community service during the week.

In addition to his work with Service Week, Stevens has also volunteered at the Glen in Shreveport with Animal Assisted Therapy and he has helped pack bins for the campus Christmas Toy Drive.

Stevens joins fellow Centenary student-athletes Sarah Bradshaw (women’s golf), Kayla Thornhill (women’s cross country) and Gregg Simmons (men’s cross country) as recipients of the SCAC’s Character and Community Award.
