Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky recently announced that College of Education student Kedron Sowells is among the 16 student-athletes that received the Winter C-USA Spirit of Service Award.

The sophomore is pursuing a bachelor of science in kinesiology while competing for the Mean Green track and field squad. He earned two top-10 finishes during the 2014 indoor season, competing in the 55-meter dash and 800-meter relay. A native of Lancaster, Texas, Sowells created the Warmth for Heart Foundation and started the North Texas Winter Garment Drive. He is a two-year member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council, serving as vice president this season. Sowells coordinated the Rookie Round Up, National Student-Athlete Day and Salvation Army Holiday collections, while also volunteering in a variety of ways for the Denton ISD.

The C-USA Spirit of Service Award is designed to recognize the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes, based upon significant community service, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport. The Spirit of Service Award is presented three times throughout the season, with the winter honorees representing Conference USA's winter sports: men's and women's basketball, women's swimming and diving, men's and women's indoor track and field.
