(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - A region-wide National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Awards program recognizing the Highpoint Health Physical Therapy Department and local high school athletic programs took place on Friday, January 4, between the River Town Classic basketball games at South Dearborn High School.

The evening featured the girls’ consolation game between Rising Sun and Switzerland County High Schools, and the girls’ championship game between Lawrenceburg and South Dearborn High Schools.  River Town is sponsored each year by Highpoint Health Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine and Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.

In 2018, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association of Carrollton, Texas, presented Lawrenceburg, Milan, Rising Sun, South Dearborn, South Ripley and Switzerland County High Schools with Safe Sports School 2nd Team recognition.  To obtain this, high school athletic programs must have accomplished numerous goals, including providing safe and                 well-maintained facilities and equipment; creating an emergency plan; developing injury and illness prevention strategies; providing pre-participation physical examinations; and offering a permanent, appropriately equipped area to treat injured athletes.

Highpoint Health’s Athletic Trainers, who provide coverage for Southeastern Indiana school sports programs, assisted the schools in obtaining their awards.

Attending the recognition of the NATA Awards were David Argo, M.D., Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Surgeon and Medical Director of the Highpoint Health Sports Medicine Outreach Program; Jennifer Bostic, LAT/ATC, PTA, Highpoint Health Athletic Training Coordinator; Brandie Goad, ATC, Beacon Orthopaedics and Lawrenceburg High School Athletic Trainer; Josh Uhlmansiek, LAT/ATC, PTA, Highpoint Health Physical Therapist Assistant and Rising Sun High School Athletic Trainer; Abigail Walters, ATC/L, Highpoint Health and South Dearborn High School Athletic Trainer; and Cliff Willoughby, LAT/ATC, PTA, Highpoint Health Physical Therapist Assistant and Switzerland County High School Athletic Trainer.

  • Costume Swap at the Dearborn County Recycling Center

    The Dearborn County Recycling Center’s Costume Swap was created as an annual event offering customers the chance to share and reuse costumes that would otherwise only be worn once. Last year over 800 individuals used the program. The program saves money and reduces waste by reusing items that otherwise would only be used once. Over 1,000 costumes for adults and children are available. Masks, wigs, makeup, accessories, treat bags and décor are also available. All available costumes are clean and in good condition, with many being brand new. The sizes of costumes range from infant and toddler to adult sizes. Costume Swap even has a small selection of pet costumes. Participants are asked to bring a costume that is clean, in ready-to-wear condition, and free of rips, tears, and stains. To be considered for exchange, all costumes must also be complete with original items, including masks and accessories that came with the costume originally. Those without a costume to exchange are asked to make a cash donation to the reuse program. Shopping times and the number of guests allowed to shop at a time will be limited. Visit dearborncountyrecycles.com for more information. Participants should be prepared with a donation in case their costume is not accepted. The program does not operate as a charity. Costume Swap is open to everyone; it is not exclusively for Dearborn County residents.
