District 6

District Representative:

Kembra Mathis, MEd, ATC, LAT
 
I have been an athletic trainer for 15 years in the secondary school setting. I am the director of the Sports Medicine Program for Bentonville High School in Bentonville AR and have been there for almost 7 years now. I picked up my bachelor’s degree in athletic training from Missouri State University in 1998 and then finished my Master’s degree in counseling from Northeastern State University in Broken-Arrow on 2005. Currently, I serve as the SWATA SSATC chair as well as the AR SSATC chair. I honestly believe the secondary school setting is the best kept secret in the field. I love working with high school kids both on the field and in the classroom and thank God every day for the opportunities I’ve been given to do the job I do. This is an exciting time to be a part of the Secondary School Athletic Training committee and I look forward to being a part of the wave of change that the future is blowing our way!
