LEBANON, Tenn.-- All student-athletes participating in sports at Cumberland University during Fall 2019 returned to campus this week. Alongside their return, the students engaged in giving back to the community during the annual Leadership Day.

The teams that went through the Fall Leadership Day includes: football, men's and women's soccer, cross country, cheer/dance, and women's volleyball.

Leadership Day starts in a small group format as the groups circulate between different sessions to either acclimate to the life of a college athlete for freshmen or readjust for returnees. After completing all the sessions, the teams split up, heading out to learn about servant leadership through community service.

The football team cleaned up around the Jimmy Floyd Family Recreational Center. Women's soccer played bingo with the residents at The Pavilion Senior Living, while men's soccer painted and picked up at New Leash on Life. The cheer squad worked at the Cedars of Lebanon. Cross country helped at West Hills Baptist church, and women's volleyball helped teachers get ready for the new school year at Wilson Central.

Winter/Spring sports will have their own Leadership Day on August 23rd.
