Student of the Month

Congratulations to our two students of the month, Payton Kingsley and Tiffani Frizzell!  This is our second tie this year, however both student have shown exceptional growth and work ethic.  Payton Kingsley is a third-year Athletic Training Student and was assigned to Broussard Center for Athletic Training this semester.  She was lead rehabilitator on a shoulder reconstruction and was always willing to help other athletic trainers and their teams with anything they needed.   According to her supervisor Micki Collins, “Payton has been an outstanding student for us these past three years. She has really stepped up and been a huge help to every rotation this past semester.  She has been the glue that has held us together when all sports were in full motion.  I really hope the younger students were watching because she was an outstanding role model.”

Tiffani, a first-year student, worked with the Cross Country/ Track and Field team this year.  Even though she is a younger student, she has worked very hard to prove herself in the Athletic Training Room.  Keith Thompson, Head Athletic Trainer for Track and Field, had only positive things to say  about her.  “It was very rewarding to see Tiffani grow and mature as a first-year athletic training student.  In the clinical setting, Tiffani took charge of several rehabilitations; demonstrated attention to detail and diligence with daily facility tasks and documentation; and asked thoughtful, appropriate questions regarding patient injuries and treatment plans.  Josh, Regan, and I had a great group of students that worked with the Track & Field team this year. We are grateful for their efforts and pleased that they were recognized by the other Graduate Assistants and Staff members.”
