 Me - Vball 2011

About Me & My Objectives: I am a Fitness and Exercise Science major at Shepherd University pursuing a career in physical education. I intend to graduate in the spring of 2013 with a BS degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies. I believe that my education and experience will make me a very competitive candidate for this position. My strengths and knowledge in this field work shows potential success.

Philosophy: I believe that every student should have the opportunity to be physically educated and active. It not only teaches the importance of team work and healthy living, but it gives students the encouragement and motivation to continue being active and involved in activities throughout a lifetime.
