Fuetsch, Albright win inagural give back like Jack community service awards


wolf-pack-logo-300x218-3787003-1066759Wolf Pack men’s basketball student-athlete Keith Fuetsch and women’s basketball coach Jane Albright are the inaugural winners of the University of Nevada’s Give Back Like Jack Community Service Awards.

As part of its participation in the Give Back Like Jack campaign, which honors the legacy of the late Jack Reviglio, a longtime philanthropist in Reno and Sparks, Nevada Athletics will present its Give Back Like Jack Community Service Award annually to the student-athlete and staff member who most exemplify the dedication to community service that was the hallmark of Reviglio’s life.

“I can’t think of two better recipients than Keith and Jane for our inaugural Give Back Like Jack Community Service Awards,” Nevada Director of Athletics Cary Groth said. “They are both dedicated to giving back to the northern Nevada community that supports us so much and are always willing to volunteer for our events and projects. Dedicating our community service to Jack’s legacy, helping to inspire others in the community to do the same and giving these awards to our student-athletes and staff every year are the greatest tributes we can pay to the Reviglio family that has been so generous to us over the years.”

A Reno native, Fuetsch participated in seven community service activities in 2011-12, including speeches at elementary schools, a Christmas shopping event for kids and an event at the Boys and Girls Club, while Albright, who is in her fifth year at Nevada, is involved with the Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, Children’s Cabinet and Race for the Cure as well as events at middle and elementary schools.

Fuetsch and Albright each received a plaque commemorating the honor, while a plaque showing the names of all of the winners will be displayed prominently in the Hall of Champions at Legacy Hall.
