(April 9, 2015) — Tarleton State had eight student athletic trainers who were recognized by the Lone Star Conference on Wednesday as the league announced its annual Athletic Training Student Academic Award winners for 2014-15.
Each academic year, the LSC recognizes student athletic trainers who devote several hours to assist with the operation of the athletics department while also finding the time to excel in the classroom. To be eligible for LSC academic honors, student athletic trainers must carry at least a 3.30 grade point average with a minimum of 24 semester hours at the nominating institution. The qualifications mirror those required of student-athletes to gain LSC All-Academic recognition.
The following Tarleton students were recipients of the LSC Athletic Training Student Academic Award:
Bailey Adams, Sr., Tulia, Texas
Bobby Creech, Sr., Dublin, Texas
Tyler Gilmore, Jr., Ennis, Texas
Lana Holbrook, Jr., Big Sandy, Texas
Maggie Kennon, Jr., Vernon, Texas
Airika Phillips, Sr., Arlington, Texas
Kassandra Soto, Jr., New Braunfels, Texas
Trichelle Walters, Grad., Houston, Texas
“I am so proud of these students,” Dr. Steve Simpson, Assistant Athletics Director for Sports Medicine, said. “They are true servant leaders. They set a great example by excelling academically and at the same time they give so much of themselves while assisting the Sports Medicine staff in providing athletic healthcare services for the student-athletes of Tarleton.”
