William Woods Athletic Training Graduate Receives Award

William Woods University alumna Sarah Harbour has been selected
as the Medical Fitness Association’s (MFA) Central Region Rising Star for manager/supervisor
staff.

A 2003 WWU graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in athletic
training, Harbour lives in Fulton. She is employed at the Sam B. Cook Healthplex
Fitness Center in Jefferson City, Mo., as an exercise specialist and aerobics
coordinator.  
 
“Sarah has a lot of passion for what she does and this shines
through in her energy and enthusiasm that she puts forth in her job. She
provides quality services, professionalism and leadership to all of our staff
and clients she comes in contact with,” said Kay Benward, Healthplex Fitness
Center supervisor.
 
This award honors outstanding achievement and leadership
within the fitness community, which Harbour exemplifies in every way. She is
actively pursuing an advanced degree and basic life support (BLS) instructor
training, which recently allowed her to assist a Healthplex member and save his
life.
 
Honored at the Central Region meeting in Cape Girardeau, Mo.,
Harbour will now be recognized at the Medical Fitness Association’s annual
conference Nov. 30–Dec. 3 in Orlando, Fla. She will also be featured in an
issue of MFA’s newsletter. She also received September’s Shining Star of the
Month Award at Capital Regional Medical Center.
