School of Kinesiology Scholarship Recipient

The Department of Kinesiology had their annual reception honoring scholarship recipients, donors, and community partners this month.  This year Olivia Wishman was awarded the Premier Scholar Scholarship Award.  This scholarship is given to the student in each kinesiology concentration that demonstrates exemplary scholarship, service, and leadership. These students must also have a 3.5 GPA and participate in organizations and activities outside of academics.  Olivia is a second year in the Athletic Training program.  She worked with Football her first year and is currently working with Women’s Basketball.  Athletic Training Program Director, Ray Castle, attended the reception and presented Olivia with her scholarship.  The reception was followed by a social hour with food that allowed the recipients, donors, and community partners to mingle.  We are excited to recognize Olivia and her accomplishment.  Senior Associate Athletic Trainer Shelly Mullenix said, "The recipient of this award has consistently represented us while at LSU and beyond. These recipients are strong leaders who are always striving to improve their clinical practice as an Athletic Trainer. I have no doubt that Olivia has overcome obstacles and as a result, she has become a confident AT Student that so many look up to for guidance and example. I am so proud that she is a part of our Athletic Training family here at LSU." Congratulations Olivia!
