Scott Sailor Wins NATA Presidential Election
The results the NATA presidential election are finalized, and former FWATA District Director, Scott Sailor, EdD, ATC, has been voted by the membership to be our next president. He will take office in June 2015. Our sincere thanks to Russ Richardson for his willingness to serve the association and to all the members who engaged in the voting process.
We caught up with Sailor shortly after he received the big news from President Jim Thornton, MA, ATC, CES, while he was walking in the parking lot at Fresno State University. When we asked him how it feels to be elected NATA president, he said: “It feels amazing! It probably hasn’t completely hit me yet. As a young athletic trainer, I remember being in an elevator with two past presidents and not having the nerve to introduce myself because I had so much admiration for them. I can’t even believe that I will be one of those people.”
Sailor had this message for his fellow athletic trainers who supported him through his campaign and took the time to vote: “I appreciate the support of our members, and I’m honored to have an opportunity to serve them.”
