EKU Athletic Training Students Promote the Profession and Mold Young Minds
Tuesday evening EKU Athletic Training students met with leaders in the field of athletic training. They learned about how to get involved in the profession and the importance of leadership. Wednesday morning, 10 juniors and 3 seniors demonstrated what they had learned from that discussion. These students stepped up to help with The Academies of Lexington’s First Annual Mission: Exploration Career Fair. Approximately 1,900 Lexington high school freshmen cycled through the career fair where they experienced spine boarding and taping lead by student in the Athletic Training Program at EKU. The freshmen were not only educated about skills, but also about the field of Athletic Training, including the scope, rewards, demands, challenges and future of Athletic Training.
*A side note from the Clinical Education Coordinator – I could not have been more proud of our students. They represented the EKU ATP professionally, with dignity, and pride. The teachers, administrators and students who attended this event were impressed with the EKU ATP students. In addition, our students had fun. It is evident they love what they are going to do. I couldn’t have had a better group of students to represent the program and the field.
