Feb. 13, 2017


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Tennessee senior Kira Toussaint and sophomore Matthew Dunphy were named to the SEC Swimming and Diving Community Service Team, the conference office announced Monday.

Toussaint, a kinesiology major, logged more than 50 hours of community service, much of it following her Olympic experience as a member of the Netherlands Team. She spent more than 20 hours giving inspirational talks at elementary schools in her hometown of Amstelveen.

She also worked with the Goals for Girls program, an educational program for local youth from underprivileged homes. Other projects included: Christmas caroling at a nursing home; assisting with a cleanup as part of a Knoxville beautifying project; volunteering at the Man Run, a Tennessee Medical Center 5K that raises money for prostate cancer screening and prevention; and participating in Voloween, a Halloween even for children of UT staff and faculty.

Dunphy, an education major from Belvidere, Tenn., is on the SEC Community Service Team for a second time in his career. He spends time every Saturday mentoring youth in the Knoxville area. He has also volunteered to work with the Man Run. Last season, he was also on the SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll.
