Katie Walsh, director of athletic training at East Carolina University, was inducted to the North Carolina Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Fame.

She is one of three women recognized with hall of fame membership.

Walsh was inducted at the NCATA meeting in Wrightsville Beach March 17.

“Dr. Walsh is a true leader in the athletic training profession in every sense of the word,” said James Scifers, NCATA president.  “She has provided steadfast leadership at the state, regional, and national levels.

“Her involvement with the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education has transformed the accreditation process for educating future athletic training professionals,” Scifers said.

Walsh was one of the first females to work full time in men’s professional athletics. Her contributions to the field include working as an athletic trainer at the Olympic Games, authoring professional textbooks, and serving as an officer in the state and district organizations.

She has authored three NATA position statements on lightning safety, served on the North Carolina High School Safety Task Force and assisted with safety and governmental polices.

“Dr. Walsh has always been an exceptional athletic trainer and this recognition is most appropriate,” said Glen Gilbert, dean of the College of Health and Human Performance where this program is housed.

Walsh has been recognizated nationally with the NATA Service Award in 2006 and the Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award in 2010.

NCATA is the professional organization for athletic trainers.  Since 1974, the NCATA has served to support athletic trainers, to promote and advance the profession of athletic training in North Carolina. The NCATA is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Trainers Association (District 3) and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.
