UKWBB’s KeKe McKinney named to SEC Community Service Team

University of Kentucky women’s basketball junior forward KeKe Mckinney has been named to the Southeastern Conference Community Service Team for her hard work and dedication to serving others in Lexington and beyond during her time with the Wildcats.

McKinney has been extremely active and passionate about community service since arriving in Lexington. Last summer, she showed the impact student-athletes can have across the world as she traveled to Ethiopia on a service trip alongside a few of her fellow Wildcats. On the trip, McKinney traveled from community to community over the course of a week sharing smiles and laughter with young kids and families while also delivering food and supplies to those less fortunate.

McKinney has also been active in the Lexington community volunteering with God’s Pantry Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Kentucky Toyota Miracle League, Lighthouse Ministries, Special Olympics and more. She’s a regular at local children’s hospitals, elementary schools and senior citizen homes sharing her amazing personality, contagious smile and blue hair (but probably keeping the lip gloss for herself!).

This marks the 22nd year for the SEC Community Service Team for women’s hoops and for men’s basketball in the conference. All league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004.

Kentucky will return to action Thursday vs. Georgia at 7 p.m. ET inside Memorial Coliseum. The game is UK’s annual Senior Night as the program will honor Ogechi Anyagaligbo, Nae Nae Cole, Sabrina Haines, Amanda Paschal and Jaida Roper pregame.
