Students choose to go to college not only to enhance their knowledge, but also to become proficient in a field that they hope to pursue as a future career. Such was the case for Sterling College senior Andrew Drake of Craig, Colo., and Jonathan Lovercamp ’09 of Beaumont, Texas, who were both recognized recently for receiving their certification in athletic training. Following certification, Drake and Lovercamp are now able to practice as certified athletic trainers and can begin working professionally.
Drake and Lovercamp took the Board of Certification exam for athletic training in November following the completion of their Bachelor of Science degree requirements. Their accomplishment was recognized on Dec. 6 during halftime of the Sterling College men’s basketball game.
Drake will be completing an internship at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., from Jan. 2 to May 10, 2013.
