Athletic Training Students Honored

The Kansas Athletic Trainers’ Society (KATS) recently honored undergraduate athletic training students who have distinguished themselves through outstanding academic achievement in accredited athletic training education programs in the state of Kansas.

Three Southwestern College students were recognized.

Nathan Morrison, Osborne, received second-team all-academic honors.  He is the son of Mark and Deb Morrison.  Second team honorees must have been a full-time undergraduate student with a sophomore status or higher and have maintained a minimum 3.6 cumulative grade-point average, achieved a minimum 3.6 grade-point average for the ’07-’08 academic year, and received a clinical performance rating of 4/5 from their education program director.

Rene Schwan, Salina, and Krystal Tyree, North Little Rock, Ark., received honorable mention all-academic honors.  Schwan is the daughter of Kerry and Tamise Schwan.  Tyree is the daughter of Eugene and Betty Tyree.  Honorable mention honorees must have been a full-time undergraduate student with a sophomore status or higher and have maintained a minimum 3.4 cumulative grade-point average, achieved a minimum 3.4 grade-point average for the ’07-’08 academic year, and received a clinical performance rating of 4/5 from their education program director.

“I think it is great that KATS is recognizing athletic training students for their hard work in the classroom,” says Lisa Braun, director of athletic training education at Southwestern.  “We have three very deserving students on this honor roll who work very hard both in the classroom and on the field for the athletes at Southwestern College.  These three students are great role models for our younger students and represent our program well.”
