Flyin’ Miners’ Ragin Earns C-USA Spirit of Service Honors

UTEP track and field member Tyler Ragin received the Conference USA Winter Spirit of Service Award, the league announced on Wednesday.

The junior has compiled more than 194 hours of community service this season, the majority of which was volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club of Central Georgia as a tutor, coach and mentor. She dedicated 30 hours at the R.E.A.L Academy helping with camps and organizing activities for kids.

The Macon, Georgia, native is a staunch supporter of driving while sober, as she volunteered at Mothers against Drunk Driving greeting walkers and spent additional time walking to end breast cancer at the AVON 39 event.

She also helped promote SAAC Hunger handing out flyers promoting hunger week.

Ragin is an organizational and corporate communications major with a marketing minor and earned a spot on the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll list.

Ragin set a personal best of 5.79m (19-0.00) in the long jump at the Cherry and Silver meet. She scored points for the Miners in the long jump helping the women’s team secure their third consecutive C-USA team title.
