July 2016

Changing of the Guard

Dr. Matthew Sabin

Dr. Fuchs, Director of the Athletic Training Program for the last six years, was hired as the Chair for the Department of Exercise and Science at EKU effective July 1, 2016. During his tenure as Program Director, he was instrumental in increasing student enrollment, increasing the clinical experiences of our students, and pre-emptively developing and starting the new MS in AT degree. Though his leadership within the program will be missed, his guidance and support as the chair of our department will be greatly appreciated.

Dr. Bobby Barton Scholarship - Currently Unfunded, Not Unfounded

Dr. Bobby Barton

To the best of my knowledge, in the Fall of 2009, an effort was started to raise money to endow a scholarship in the name of Dr. Bobby Barton. Dr. Barton has impacted a multitude of EKU graduates and clinicians and is beyond deserving of this honor. He has served the profession, his athletes, as well as the graduate and undergraduate students lucky enough to have come up through the ranks under his instruction. Almost 7 years later, the fund to create this scholarship remains below the minimum so no scholarships can be distributed in his honor.
