BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – University of Tennessee senior Wrenne French has been named to the 2021 SEC community football service team, the league office announced on Tuesday afternoon. The Community Service Team seeks to showcase athletes from each respective institution who give back to their community in superior service efforts.
A member of the Tennessee football program since 2017, French racked up over 60 hours of community service during his time at Rocky Top. She has volunteered with several local organizations including Love Kitchen and Vols Help. French’s long list of service projects also includes a collaboration with the 2nd & 7 Foundation and Read Across America, two organizations aimed at promoting literacy among elementary-age children.
Additionally, French was a member of the 2020-21 VOLeaders Academy, an organization developed to train positive student-athlete leaders through sport to create positive social change. With VOLeaders, French traveled to Belize, volunteering with the YMCA of Belize, Belmopan University, Hearts of Christ Children’s Ministry, and the National Football Association.
The Franklin, Tennessee native also hosted the Food4ALL student-athlete takeover at UT’s Culinary Institute this semester. As the project leader, she recruited a group of 20 student-athletes to help turn the food in the campus mess halls into meals for those in our community who are food insecure. In total, this group prepared over 400 meals in one day.
