FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- On Wednesday, the Lady Broncos softball team paid tribute, in their own way, to the men and women that serve our country every day.
The Lady Broncos volunteered at the Alexander Street Center, serving dinner to the struggling and homeless veterans in our area. The players were deeply touched by their experience, unable to understand how these men and women can put their lives on the line to protect those of us at home, and yet struggle to survive once they leave the military.
While the experience was meant to give back to the community, the team's players found that they were the ones who received something from the experience: Humility. Each of them can see the blessing in their lives more clearly and are all the more thankful for them.
At the end of the evening, the Lady Broncos voted, unanimously, to return in two weeks to give back to their community once again.
Participating in the event were: Malia Blue, Kalneisha Drawhorn, Jasmin Harris, Sierra Henderson-Holmes, Sencerae Locklear, Sacari Miller, Olivia Peavey, Clarissa Pitts, Rebecca Polaschek, Jessica Randolph, Lashanda Washington, Maya Washington,Yasmin Wilson, and Laura Worriax. Overseeing the event was one of FSU's own veterans, Fayetteville State softball coach Miguel "Coach Who" Justiniano.
