Last year, the South Carolina equestrian team won their third national title.

Junior equestrian team member Courtney Allen knows that national championship could not have happened without the efforts of the Gamecock Club.

“The equestrian team is so thankful for everything that the Gamecock Club does for us and without them we wouldn’t be where we are today,” Allen said.

Every year, the University of South Carolina holds a special Donor Appreciation Day. This year the annual event was held on Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Dodie Anderson Academic Enrichment Center.

During Donor Appreciation Day, South Carolina student-athletes take time out of their incredibly busy schedules to sign thank you cards for donors.

For Allen and the other South Carolina student-athletes it is a very rewarding day.

“Getting to take this day to do a small thank you to all of the people that help us out in the athletic community is really cool,” Allen said. “I like that it involves the entire athletic body and it’s a nice way to say thank you.”
