Cougar Athletic Training Student Alumni

The Cougar athletic training student alumni have laid, and continue to support, the foundation of the sports medicine department’s ongoing success.

“I never dreamed, back in January of 1981, that I would see our program become one of the top community college athletic training programs in Kansas, and quite possibly the NJCAA.”  - Ken Henderson, Head Athletic Trainer

Graduates, and those who chose to leave early, have all had an impact on our program. The links to each decade’s athletic training students can be found below. Hopefully, no one has been left out.
