Words about me by bailey adams
June 8, 2014

Hello all! My name is Bailey Adams and I am currently a senior at Tarleton State University located in Stephenville, Texas. While attending Tarleton State University, I am a member of the Tarleton Sports Medicine Association and plan on getting my degree to become an Athletic Trainer.  In December of 2014 I will be taking my Texas licensure for athletic training. Then in May of 2015 I will graduate from Tarleton State University. Below is one of my favorite picture’s  taken of the Tarleton Field House before a football game. The helmet represents a player who passed away during two-a-days, and each player as well as the staff touches the helmet before entering the field.

Tarleton State Univeristy

I was born and raised in Tulia, Texas where I was involved in a variety of activities both in and out of school. These activities included: cheerleading, One Act Play, National Honors Society, 4-H, basketball, volleyball, track, and tennis.

This summer instead of staying in Stephenville to take classes and work, I decided that I would come back to my hometown and spend time with my family as well as work. After speaking with Calley at the Extension Office in Tulia, I decided that this internship would be an amazing experience for me as well as my career in athletic training. My goal as an athletic trainer is to come back to a small town such as Tulia and be the first full time athletic trainer. This is important to me because I have experienced being in athletics without a full time athletic trainer first hand. Below is my 2013-2014 Sports Medicine picture. Each year the Sports Medicine Staff takes a picture for the website and my goal is to have each picture hanging up in my own office.

About Me: Bailey Adams

One of my goals for this summer is to gain knowledge about the community of Tulia. Although I know some things about Tulia, I feel like there are a variety of things I do not have knowledge of. I also want to see how my future career of being a full time athletic trainer would benefit the community of Tulia.
