Martin Methodist Assistant Athletic Trainer Christine Lewis was named campus liaison to the newly formed Southern States Athletic Conference Women’s Leadership Committee Monday afternoon.

Lewis is one of 12 campus liaisons chosen by the conference to the committee that seeks to enrich professional experiences within the SSAC and collegiate athletics for women.

The committee held their first meeting on the campus of Faulkner (Ala.) in late May, where Lewis was chosen as Martin Methodist’s representative.

"I am very excited to see what this initiative can lead to,” SSAC Commissioner Mike Hall said. “We have many great female leaders, both in the coaching ranks and administrative areas in our conference”.

As Assistant Athletic Trainer, Lewis is responsible for the day-to-day activities of the Martin Methodist Sports Medicine department. Lewis directly works with all 18 varsity intercollegiate sports as well as the junior varsity programs.
