The women's softball team at Kansas City Kansas Community College has been named Non-Profit Organization of the Month by Sporting Kansas City and The Legends.
The award was presented for the various capacities of work performed by coaches and members of this year's Lady Blue Devil squad at Sporting KC home soccer games in September at Children's Mercy Park at The Legends.
"The group of KCKCC softball players was amazing during the time that they were out here fund-raising," said Kimberly Lanio of Sporting KC's staff division. "You have a great group of girls. When they came in to work, they were ready. They always showed up early and with smiles on their faces and once a location is explained to them they go right to work.
"I have heard from clients that they are quick and quiet which is great in the premium. The girls are always willing to move to where I need them and while they might not be happy about it, they still work their tails off – which is why I nominated them for the Non-Profit Organization for the month of September."
The plaque presented to KCKCC head coach Kacy Tillery and assistant Tiffany Jennings read "In recognition of your outstanding performance reflecting the 6A's of Service for September 2017. Your commitment to excellence is appreciated by all."
