HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (7/22/14) — Madisonville Community College student Jarrod Evans had the opportunity to serve as a student House usher and special assistant to the House Officers at the 2014 American Physical Therapy Association House of Delegates in Charlotte, N.C., June 9-11, 2014.

A Morgantown resident, Evans is currently enrolled in MCC’s Physical Therapist Assistant program – Class of 2015. He represented Kentucky and was one of 16 students from across the United States serving at the 3-day meeting attended by more than 600 delegates, caucus members and guests.

Evans, along with one other student, was designated as “special assistant.” This allowed him the opportunity to sit on the raised dais alongside the Vice-speaker and assist with tracking the amount of time each delegate spoke so that the meeting flowed and many motions and measures could be discussed.

Reflecting on his experience, Evans shared, “PTA faculty members Mrs. Stephanie Taylor and Mrs. Amanda Skeen supported and encouraged my willingness to be active in my future profession as a Physical Therapist Assistant, and to that I am grateful. Without their support I most likely wouldn’t have pursued this opportunity at the House of Delegates. However, because of their support, I was able to represent my program, my school and my state for three days in Charlotte N.C. My favorite moment was on the first night when all the ushers got to introduce themselves in front of the crowd. I was proud to stand there and be able to say, “My name is Jarrod Evans. I am a PTA student at Madisonville Community College which is located in the great state of Kentucky.”
