Athletic training student, Weston Vickers, was one of three Arkansas students selected for the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) iLEAD Leadership program. The inaugural iLEAD student leadership seminar in 2009 brought together 150+ students from 43 states, all focused on learning to lead the profession of athletic training.
Weston attended the NATA seminar in Dallas, Texas on January 11 and 12, 2013. This program is conducted for junior and senior students who are interested in learning more about leadership and in preparing to transition to the professional world of athletic training. Students have the opportunity to speak with their peers and with athletic training leaders regarding ethics, interviewing, networking and a variety of other topics.
Weston joins six previous UCA ATEP students who have been selected for the NATA iLEAD Program.
Weston will graduate in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training.
