George Washington women's cross country senior Heather Stevens is the GW Athletics Community Service Student-Athlete of the Month for April.

The Community Service Athlete of the Month distinction is awarded to a student-athlete who leads by example and who most impacts the GW and 
Washington community through service.

Heather has been an integral part of GW's Turning the Page/DC Reads Program in addition to various community-service initiatives. In her latest project, she has tutored local elementary school students in an effort to raise literacy while helping the students succeed in the classroom and beyond.

As part of GW's Neighbor's Project, Heather has logged over 100 hours of community service during the 2012-13 academic year. In November, she spearheaded the GW Women's Cross Country team's efforts in collecting donations for Thanksgiving baskets, Adopt-a-Family programs and other holiday food drives.

"Heather is the quintessential GW student-athlete," said GW Athletics' LifeSkills Coordinator Ted Costigan. "She has done an excellent job leading her peers by example and struck a truly admirable balance between athletic training and community service."

A native of Hinsdale, Ill., Heather will be graduating in May with a degree in English. She led the Colonials with a 15
th-place finish at the 2012 Atlantic 10 Championships to earn All-Conference honors.
