Hovatter, who is heavily involved with the Ole Miss chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), has be highly active in the Ole Miss and Oxford and Lafayette country communities since arriving at Ole Miss. Hovatter leads a weekly bible study with Ole Miss volleyball player Rachael Weathersby for high school girls at Oxford high school and through her participation in FCA, has helped to build a home for an elderly resident in Oxford, while also spending time visiting with residents at a local nursing home. Hovatter most recently shared her testimony during the 2015 Ole Miss Rebel Intercollegiate Easter Service, sharing her story of faith with all the teams in town for the women’s golf seventh annual Rebel Intercollegiate golf tournament.

Additionally, Hovatter has given back through the game of golf by serving as a camp counselor at the Ole Miss golf camps each of the past three years while also serving as a participant each of the last three years at the Ole Miss National Women’s and Girls in Sports Day program.

The SEC names a Community Service Team for each of its 21 league-sponsored sports, looking to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to his or her community through superior service efforts. All league-sponsored sports have had a community service team since 2004, with at-large teams for men and women’s sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football community service team in 1994.
