Degree: Master’s in Athletic Training
College/School: Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences
In the words of Robert Ingersoll, “We rise by lifting others,” and Master of Science in Athletic Training graduate Jeremy Stevens has truly lived by these words.
Growing up a sports fan and student athlete, Jeremy’s high school athletic trainer left a lasting impression that ultimately planted the seed for the career he will now embark on. But first he answered the call to serve our country by enlisting in the U.S. Marines at the age of 18. He earned many recognitions including a Certificate of Commendation, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the National Defense Service Medal. He served with distinction through his honorable discharge in 2009 as a sergeant.
With his military service complete, Jeremy directed his dedication to help others through sports medicine. A leader who has motivated his peers, Jeremy was appointed to represent all Southeast region athletic training students on the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Student Leadership Committee. He held a full-time job while completing his degree, and even went beyond program requirements to create an internship opportunity for himself.
The strong work ethic and leadership qualities Jeremy developed in the military has translated to his education and set him apart as not only a Worlds Ahead graduate, but an individual who leaves an incredible impression on all who cross his path.
