March 2018 Student Spotlight
Share |

"The Best way to predict your Future is to create it."


Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States 


The MPTA places tremendous value on our student members. The student members of today will become the future leaders of our organization. Our student members are truly creating their own future; at a very early stage in their careers they see the value in their professional organization.


Each month the MPTA will place a spotlight on one of our tremendous student physical therapists or student physical therapist assistants. Please contact Sylvia Czuppon, MPTA Social Media Chair, if you would like to recommend a student for our Spotlight page.

I feel honored to have been nominated for this award by my professors. My professors at Maryville University have always encouraged me to pursue my professional goals and have instilled in me a passion for advocacy as well. This year I am helping to coordinate a Student Advocacy Dinner at my school, and I look forward to attending MPTA Lobby Day as well to advocate our profession to legislators. I believe that as students we have a strong voice, and it is our responsibility to advocate for our profession because we are the future of physical therapy.
