Goodbye Thompson Family

We are sad to see the Thompsons leave our athletic training family, but so happy for this new journey in their life.  Melissa Thompson has been the Assistant Professor of Professional Practice and Advisor of Alpha Tau Sigma since 2004.  Keith Thompson was our Track and Field/ Cross Country staff athletic trainer and drug test administrator for 12 years total.  Keith and Melissa have been such a blessing to our program and have never hesitated to go above and beyond to help our students and program.  Both have taught many of the students’ classes and have always had a passion for enhancing the knowledge of our athletic training students.  They will now be moving to West Virginia where Keith has taken a position with Mylan Pharmaceuticals in Morgantown.  Keith has already begun working and is working with their Quality Assurance Division.   Melissa will be working on her most important job as Mom and says she will “Wait on God to open the door He wants to open”.  After speaking with Melissa she says they both “Enjoyed their time here at LSU, working with the students and staff.  Everyone will be missed, but we are excited for what’s in store”.   Congrats on this new opportunity Thompsons and we wish you luck on this new stage in life! You will be missed.
