Chariton residents can expect to see a friendly new face on the sidelines at Charger athletic events. Through a partnership with Chariton High School, Tyler Nance now serves as the Certified Athletic Trainer for Chariton High School.
“This is just one example how organizations in Chariton come together and work towards the greater good for our community. Lucas County Health Center appreciates the opportunity to serve our school administrators, coaches, and athletes”, said Brian Sims, CEO of Lucas County Health Center. “This is an exciting time for the Chariton Community School District and Lucas County Health Center.”
Athletic trainers are trained professionals who specialize in sports related injuries. They are trained to spot potential for injury, reduce injury rates, and help student athletes safely return to the game following an injury.
“This will be a huge benefit for our student athletes in helping to not only treat injuries, but also prevent them,” said Tim Milledge, Athletic Director at Chariton High School. “We’re excited to partner with LCHC and have Tyler working with our students and coaches to ensure that all players are at the top of their game.”
Nance received his Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from the University of Iowa. He is returning to his hometown of Chariton to live and work on a full-time basis.
