Trint Palmer, Head Athletic Trainer at Western Texas College, is currently looking for students for the athletic training program.
Currently, the program cares for 15 NJCAA Division 1 sports on campus and student trainers are a vital part of that program.
Each student trainer receives scholarship money that can be used for tuition, fees, housing and meals, and books. (Scholarship money awarded is based on need and participation in the program.)
The goal of the program is to prepare the student for acceptance into an accredited athletic training education program at a four-year university.
If you are interested in obtaining this scholarship or have any questions about the program, please contact Trint Palmer.
