Family and Friends of Todd Jager
To honor the memory of Todd Jager, Grand Valley’s Head Athletic Trainer for 10 years, family and friends have created the Todd Jager Memorial Graduate Athletic Training Student Award Endowment fund. It was created in spring of 2008 to assist graduate students pursuing a career in college athletic training. Todd spent his college and professional years in college athletics and recognized the significant dedication and determination involved to pursue this profession. It is fitting that Todd’s battle with brain cancer required similar dedication and determination to continue to do what he loved, which was to provide medical care for college athletes.
This scholarship will provide financial support to outstanding graduate students working as a graduate assistant in Grand Valley State University’s Intercollegiate Athletic Department who demonstrate the values, character and perseverance that Todd worked so hard to embody. The recipient will have a Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training or similar major and be pursuing an athletic training career in college athletics, with preference given to students with involvement in campus ministry.
