Dr. Jeffrey Behrens Athletic Training Scholarship
The Dr. Jeffrey Behrens Athletic Training Scholarship is an annual award given to an athletic training student at Augustana College. The award was created by, and is funded through, Sanford USD Medical Center as a memorial tribute to the significant contributions Dr. Behrens made to the Athletic Training Education Program of Augustana. Dr. Behrens provided numerous services to Augustana.
He served primarily as the Medical Director of Sports Medicine, team physician, lecturer and mentor to the athletic training students. He will always be remembered for his persistent work ethic, his passion for sports medicine, his humor and his compassion to help others. Dr. Behrens was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on September 11, 2000.
Recipients of this award are selected by their peers and the certified Athletic Training Staff of the College. The applicants are evaluated on academic integrity, work ethic, acceptance of responsibility, willingness to help others and their commitment to athletic training.
