Nelson, '13, Headed to Chiropractic School
Kristin Nelson is currently one of Albion’s most accomplished track and field athletes, holding the school records in the long jump, triple jump, and the 400-meter dash. As the Iron Mountain native heads into the final weeks of her Albion career, she is not only looking forward to breaking some of her own records, but also to attending graduate school at National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Ill., where she will pursue a chiropractic degree next fall.
Weaver, '13, Finishes with Top Choice in Graduate School Process
An all-Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association and all-region performer in cross country, Albion College senior Amanda Weaver always aims to reach the finish line as quickly as possible. The speedy process of landing a place in her top choice for graduate school – from completing the application in January to interviewing and accepting in February – was surprising even by her standards.
A Marshall product, Weaver has confirmed her acceptance to the clinical exercise physiology program at Ball State University. She will be just one of six students accepted into the program out of a pool of 50 applicants, and she is on track for a career in cardiac rehabilitation.
Athletic Training Club Sponsors Bone Marrow Drive
Albion College's Athletic Training Club is sponsoring a bone marrow donor registration drive Thursday, March 21 from noon to 5:45 p.m. in the First United Methodist Church Tennant Hall. The bone marrow donor registration drive is not part of the Red Cross blood drive. Anyone wishing to do only the bone marrow registry is not required to participate in the blood drive.
Moon, '13, Goes Pro as Athletic Training Intern
Anthony Moon has earned a varsity letter as a member of the Albion College baseball team and he is used to the relatively slower pace of the game as compared to many other sports.
The senior from Paw Paw, however, adjusted nicely this summer when he made the leap to the frantic pace common to the National Football League as one of the athletic training interns for the Cleveland Browns during training camp. The adjustment was even more impressive considering it was Moon's first physically demanding activity since coming off hip surgery, which forced him to miss the 2012 Briton baseball season.
