  4. 2017 Leadership Summit: The purpose of the Leadership Summit is to provide two students from each Athletic Training Program the opportunity to expand their knowledge in leadership.  This year featured guest speaker Dr. Damon Arnold of Grand Valley State University.  Dr. Arnold is the Director of Academic Services in the Athletic Department and a motivational speaker.  Dr. Arnold spoke about his book the PyramIT of Purpose, about finding your purpose and being a leader in your field and how to encourage your athletes. Students learned what leadership style they currently possess, discuss examples of leadership stories and how it affected them on a personal level, and a guided blindfold activity focusing on leadership communication.
