Chesapeake Skipjacks demonstrate their dedication and teamwork in both the classroom and during competitions. Members of the women’s basketball team recently took those attributes to a community service project when they worked on a Habitat for Humanity Choptank build in Easton. Click here for more.
“We encourage our student-athletes to become involved in our community. Being on athletics teams at Chesapeake is a privilege, and it carries some responsibility,” said Director of Athletics Frank Szymanski. “We want our student-athletes to look beyond our campus and take opportunities to give back in the community.”
Student-athletes have helped with Habitat projects for the last two years.
The Skipjacks who worked on the Easton build were: Chantelle Gross, Reeva Jackson, Janice Ladson, Shahara Madison, Chandni Taylor, Emily Truitt and Deondria Wimber. Coaches Gwen Barnes, Alex Barnes, and Marcus Wood also participated in the build.
