STARKVILLE, Miss. - Fresh off a road win at Mississippi Valley State and two scoreless outings at home against No. 2 Alabama, Mississippi State softball pitcher Misty Flesher has been nominated for the Southeastern Conference's Brad Davis Community Service Post-Graduate Scholarship, the league announced this past week. The winner will be announced Thursday, April 5, 2012.

The redshirt senior was nominated along with MSU baseball All-American Caleb Reed. In addition, Bulldog tennis player Louis Cant and MSU soccer's Kim Pettit were nominated for the SEC's H. Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete Post-Graduate Scholarship.

Flesher has been co-president of MSU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, while also bringing in more than 4,000 pounds of food to be distributed to impoverished families in the area as a leader of the campus-wide Thanksgiving canned food drive. She has participated in various summer softball camps, volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and has worked extensively with  Bully's Book Blitz, which encourages literacy to schoolchildren.

The Lone Grove, Okla., native has furthermore helped teach and tutor children around the county area, including Aiken Village Preschool, Sudduth Elementary School and East Oktibbeha County Elementary School. Flesher graduated Cum Laude with a degree in elementary education this past December and is currently enrolled in the instructional technology master's program at State. Along with being a member of the National Collegiate Honorary Society, she has similarly been a five-year member of the MSU Bulldog Honor Roll and Academic All-SEC Honor Roll. The past two years, Flesher has been named a NFCA All-America Scholar-Athlete.

Athletically, Flesher has been a force in the circle in her four years at State, ranking in the top five all-time in school history in appearances (119, 2nd), wins (43, 4th) and strikeouts (254, 5th). This season, the right-hander is 3-1 with a team-low 2.28 ERA.

The Davis Scholarship is presented annually by the SEC in honor of former Associate Commissioner Brad Davis, who served the conference from 1988 until his passing in 2006. The award is presented to the league's male and female athlete that has made an impact at their school and surrounding community.
