In honor of National Athletic Training Month, GHS would like to recognize special VIP members of its athletic family – athletic trainers. During March, athletic trainers across America are being recognized for their commitment to helping people prevent injuries and stay healthy and active. Athletic trainers are health care professionals who are highly educated and dedicated to the job at hand. They can be found at high schools, colleges, corporations, professional sports, the military, performing arts and clinics, hospitals, and physician offices. They provide compassionate care for all. GHS would like to salute our athletic trainers for providing quality health care for our athletes and employees every day. Catherine Wolhford, George Potter, and Maritza Chavez Stahly – we appreciate each of you and are thankful for what you all do for us here at GHS! Join me in applauding them and in celebrating National Athletic Training Month!
