St. Amant High School’s Athletic Trainer Scott Arceneaux has been chosen to receive this year’s National Athletic Trainers’ Association Athletic Trainer Service Award.

At St. Amant, he serves as a teacher and a director of sports medicine. Arceneaux has been with St. Amant for 23 years.

He started the sports medicine courses at the school, which he says was the impetus for the Allied Health course.

The award goes to athletic trainers who were nominated by their peers who have at least 20 years of service within the profession.

“It means a lot to me, because of what it stands for. It stands for all of the work you put into the school and the community to improve the profession and all of the people that you care for,” Arceneaux said.
