OGDEN, Utah – Brittnie Holmgren, a junior majoring in athletic training at Weber State University, recently was selected as one of 20 students to attend the 2nd Annual Athletic Training Student Leadership Seminar in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., May 17-19.
The seminar is for two students from each of the 10 National Athletic Training Association (NATA) districts. The Collegiate Sports Medicine Foundation provides a scholarship that includes travel to and from the conference, as well as lodging and meals for each participant. Holmgren was the only student from Utah selected to attend.
During the conference, students will study the future of athletic training, graduate school opportunities, career development and organizational skills. Instructors include past and present NATA leaders.
Holmgren, who has been active in the WSU Athletic Training Association as the organization's vice president, was chosen after submitting an application in March. She is excited to attend the seminar.
"It's a neat opportunity," she said. "It will give me an extra edge learning from people who want to help me get where they are professionally."
After completion of the athletic training program at WSU, Holmgren plans to pursue a master's degree in exercise science and athletic training.
