Bobcats’ Webb to receive
Most Distinguished Trainer Award
Britney Webb, a member of the athletic trainers staff at Texas State and a senior lecturer in the Department of Health and Human Performance, will be given the Most Distinguished Trainer Award from the Southwest Athletic Trainers Association this summer.
She is one of three athletic trainers who will receive the award at the organization’s 57th annual meeting and clinical symposium July 13-16 in Houston. A number of honorees will be recognized at the awards luncheon on July 15.
“I have a passion for athletic training and feel service is extremely important for our profession,” she says. “I am tremendously appreciative of the association recognizing not only me but all the award winners for their hard work to make this profession better for generations to come.”
The Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award was developed to recognize a member “whose dedicated service, past achievements and professional contributions have furthered the advancement of the SWATA and the athletic training profession,” according to a news release from the association.
Honorees must have 15 years or more of professional service to the athletic training profession; be members of the association; have experience in elected, appointed, or volunteer service; and have made “significant contributions” to the SWATA.
Webb is the chair of the Life Balancing committee for SWATA and has served as chair of the Women in Athletic Training committee.
Webb came to Texas State in 2006. She teaches athletic training classes and oversees the off-campus clinical site, where the athletic training students participate in clinical rotations. She has her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Tarleton State University.
SWATA is part of the National Athletic Trainers Association, with members in Texas and Arkansas.
