The END of the school year...
The Doisy College of Health Sciences pre-commencement celebration took place on Thursday, May 15th at Chaifetz Arena. I was invited to be the Master of Ceremonies (I hope I didn't make TOO many mistakes) and AT student Kellie Black received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree. I enjoyed meeting her entire family at the reception after pre-commencement.
Chaifetz Arena proved to be a dazzling new home for our ceremonies.
And a NEW BEGINNING!
This week Kellie and three others will start the Professional Phase of the Athletic Training as our first class of students in the program. They are all transfers, two from other programs at SLU and two from outside of SLU. The other students starting Gross Anatomy and Principles of Athletic Training this week are Heather King (SLU), Ilene Chambers (SIU) and Eric Sass (Elon).
We are very excited to have such fine students in our first class and I look forward to having us all grow and develop together!
