Ask almost anyone if they had a favorite teacher or coach growing up and you’re likely to get a smile and at least one name immediately. Although it has been a while since I was a student in K-12, I still remember some great teachers and great experiences.

We sometimes say at Floyd that our organization delivers health care where people live, work and play. We should add to this, where people go to school. We have been involved for many years with athletic trainers in area schools and colleges. Floyd got the opportunity to assume leadership of the school nurse programs in the Rome City Schools and Floyd County Schools last year, and next year, in the Polk County Schools.
