AT Students Awarded Scholarships at MAATA Annual Meeting
Collin Peterson and Stephanie Ross, professional year one students in Doisy College of Health Sciences' athletic training program, were each awarded scholarships at the 37th Annual Mid
America Athletic Training Association (MAATA) Meeting and Symposium this spring.
The scholarship awards each student $500 towards their athletic training education,
as well as a plaque for each student and for the University. The selection criteria
includes not only academic excellence and clinical performance, but professional and
community service. Peterson and Ross excelled in each of these areas.
"It was very exciting to be chosen," Ross said. "It was even more exciting because
we were the first two SLU students to ever receive this scholarship."
Athletic Training Program Director Anthony Breitbach, Ph.D, ATC, said he was thrilled
to see the students rewarded for their hard work.
"It is great to see Collin and Stephanie recognized by the MAATA for their accomplishments
in the classroom and beyond," Breitbach said. "It is great to have such quality students
in our program at Saint Louis University."
The MAATA is one of the ten districts of the National Athletic Trainers' Association.
Its mission is to enhance the professional and leadership abilities of the membership
by providing encouragement, mentorship and improvement opportunities in the profession
of athletic training.
