Basketball Captain Kevin Montminy Nominated for Community Service Award

Penn State basketball player Kevin Montminy, a former walk-on guard who earned a scholarship this season, has been nominated for Allstate’s 2015 National Association of Basketball Coaches and Good Works Team.

The award recognizes a group of student athletes who “have demonstrated a commitment to enriching the lives of others and contributing to the greater good in their communities.”

Montminy does much more than just basketball: In addition to being a captain and member of coach Pat Chambers’ leadership council, he is the president of Penn State’s Coaches v. Cancer chapter, works with Athletes Take Action teaching anti-bullying lessons at local schools, represents the men’s basketball team on the Student-Athlete Advisory Board, and coordinates men’s basketball’s athlete hour and the pep rally during THON weekend. Montminy has also attended local mini-THONs the last two years, all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA the last five semesters as a Schreyer’s Scholar in Smeal’s finance and one-year MACC programs.

If “Hoops McGloin” does make the  Good Works team, he’ll be invited to the Final Four in Indianapolis, where he would work on a community service project to benefit the city. With the impact he has made on Penn State community, he is certainly deserving of the award.
