In honor of former head athletic trainer Robert ‘Doc’ Goodwin’s 30-plus years at Southeastern Louisiana University, the school is establishing an endowment supporting the athletic program.
The announcement was made by a group of lead donors at a surprise reception held recently at the university’s Dugas Athletic Training Room.
Collegiate Consulting LLC owner Ron Anderson, of Hammond, spearheaded the effort to establish the endowment. Anderson was a student-athlete on Southeastern’s track team in the early 1990s when Goodwin was head trainer, a news release said.
Goodwin is a graduate of Southeastern and has received the Alumni Association’s Distinguished Service Award, the L.E. Chandler Award for service to students and Southeastern’s Presidents Award for Excellence in Service.
His other honors include the Louisiana Athletic Trainers Association Hall of Fame, the Louisiana Sports Medicine Society’s Jim Finks Award and the National Athletic Trainers Association District IXS Service Award.
