For the second consecutive year, Tennessee basketball forward John Fulkerson has been named to the SEC Community Service Team.

The senior from Kingsport, Tennessee, is on pace to earn the Bronze Service Medallion, an honor given to University of Tennessee students who give at least 100 hours of their time back to their community.

Since the Fall of 2016, Fulkerson has primarily served at the Emerald Youth Foundation of Knoxville, the annual Hoops for Hope event and at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Through those efforts and more, Fulkerson has cultivated lasting relationships while making an impact far beyond the confines of Tennessee’s campus.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many outreach events transitioned to virtual platforms over the past year. Despite those challenges, Fulkerson has continued to find ways to pour into others, exemplifying the Volunteer Creed: One who beareth the torch, shadoweth oneself to give light to others.

Fulkerson has also been a member of Tennessee’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for the past two years and helped facilitate and plan a number of virtual events in an effort to make a positive impact in the community.

On the court, UT’s fifth-year senior is the team’s fourth-leading scorer (9.3 ppg) and second-leading rebounder (5.7 rpg). His rebounding average ranks 20th in the SEC heading into Sunday’s regular-season finale against Florida at Thompson-Boling Arena (noon ET, ESPNU).

Fulkerson and fellow senior Yves Pons will be honored during Sunday’s pregame Senior Day ceremonies.
