On behalf on the entire LSU athletic training program, we would like to recognize and thank Mr. Joe Melancon for his yearly donation to the Athletic Training Special Assistance Fund, which is used to help our students and graduate assistant get through these challenging financial times. Mr. Melancon is a former LSU baseball player who always had an interest in athletic training and special admiration for his mentor, Mr. "Buck" Jordan, who is now a member of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, and "Doc" Broussard, who help him during the rehabilitation process for an injured wrist during his playing time. Today, Mr. Melancon works at Lee Finance Company in Franklinton, LA which is a family owned business. He has been gracious enough to donate a generous amount of money to our program and our athletic training students. We all appreciate his generosity and look forward to opportunities it will create in the future.
