This is a good story for everyone involved," said Sterling College Director of Athletic Training Pete Manely. It's good for SC graduate Kim Elwood '05, who will leave her position as assistant athletic trainer at Sterling College this summer to pursue her master's in athletic training at the University of Oklahoma. It's also good for SC alumnus Jason Coles '09, who just finished his master's at Ohio University and will take Elwood's position. "And it's good for the Sterling College Athletic Training Program," said Manely.
More than half of Sterling College's junior and senior athletic training majors were honored by the Kansas Athletic Trainers' Society for outstanding academic achievement in SC's accredited Athletic Training Program.
Two students received First-Team All-Academic Honors: Andrew Wolfenberger of Newton, Kan., and Joe Streckfus of Lakin, Kan. First-Team honorees had to be full time students of junior status or higher during the 2008 calendar year with a minimum 3.8 average GPA.
April 19, 2010, Sterling, Kansas-Out of over 400 papers submitted to the National Undergraduate Literature Conference this year, only 200 were accepted for presentation. A paper by Sterling College junior English major Taylor Libby was one those, and Libby was asked to present her ideas at the Conference in Ogden, Utah, on April 4.
"As I enter my senior year it is important that I begin to really build my résumé," Libby said. "This conference was a great experience and a good opportunity to get my feet wet in the English world."
