Four members of the CUW Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) department recently won awards at the Wisconsin Athletic Trainers’ Association’s annual symposium.  

Founded in 1976, the Wisconsin Athletic Trainers’ Association (WATA) currently serves over 700 professional licensed athletic trainers in the state of Wisconsin. Athletic trainers are health professionals who provide care for active individuals.

Student awardees

Two CUW students were among this year’s award recipients.

Kylie Lange received the association’s Founding Fathers scholarship. This is an award dedicated to students in their first year of a professional training program.

Andrew Javoroski received the Mueller Professional Scholarship. The recipients of the award are members of both the WATA and National Athletic Training Association (NATA).

These students have shown outstanding work in their program, and have brought great credit to both the university and themselves.

Faculty awardees

NATA also presented awards to faculty members at the meeting.

April Gotzler, PhD, LAT, received Outstanding Professor recognition. Jennifer Thorpe, PhD, ATC, LAT, CSCS, was awarded for Distinguished Service. These dedicated members of the university’s MSAT program have given their students an opportunity to grow and share in the field of professional athletic training.

The WATA grants these awards to individuals who demonstrate hard work and excellent character, striving to serve others with compassion and respect for their rights and well-being.
