LSU Athletic Training Student of the Month

Congratulations to Dani Klein, this month's Student of the Month! Dani is a 3rd year Athletic Training Student currently working with University High School. Previous clinical rotations include LSU Football and Swimming and Diving. Throughout her years at LSU, Dani has been a superior role model and leader in both the classroom and clinically, as well as actively promoting the Athletic Training profession. At the conclusion of her junior year, Dani obtained a highly sought after NFL Summer Internship position with the Buffalo Bills. She was LSU's first female athletic training student to acquire such an internship. As expected, she represented LSU with integrity and hard work. She currently serves as the President of LSU's Student Organization, Alpha Tau Sigma, where she takes on many leadership responsibilities, including community service events and fundraisers. One of her main responsibilities this year was to coordinate the Alpha Tau Sigma's Annual High School Student Symposium.

Melissa Sorrells, MS, ATC, Head Athletic Trainer for University High School has had the pleasure of supervising Dani's current clinical rotation while at LSU and says "Dani's extraordinary leadership abilities have enabled her to become one of the top students in the program. Her passion and dedication to the Athletic Training profession as well as U-High has made her one to be counted on and looked up to, from not just the student athletes, but to faculty, staff, and other medical professionals as well. I have no doubt that she will succeed in her future role at Virginia Tech and go on to do great things for Athletic Training". Upon leaving the LSU Athletic Training Program in May, Dani will attend Virginia Tech University where she will obtain her Master's Degree while pursuing a Graduate Assistantship with Swimming and Diving. We wish Dani the best of luck in her future endeavors in the Athletic Training profession!
