Helen Jeter League Volunteer of the Year
This person must possess an outstanding dedication and service to the South Carolina League Tennis programs. Must be a motivator to players, league coordinators, and provide enthusiastic leadership with special involvement in promoting tennis at the grassroots level.
Susan Turner has coordinated USTA leagues in Columbia for the past 10 years. On top of that she is the State League Coordinator for Mixed Doubles, volunteers at all eight of the League Championships and is a referee for three of them. It’s obvious from that that Susan is always ready to undertake any project that needs to be done in her league and around the state.
Helen Jeter was a tireless volunteer advocate for tennis, league programs, and the USTA. Beginning as the state’s first League Coordinator, she gave years of her life to growing the game. She was Past President of USTA South Carolina, served on the Board at USTA Southern and on numerous committees at State, Section and National levels. Jeter passed away in October 2014. She was 73.
