Brian Catania is a 1999 graduate from the University of Maryland and 2001 graduate from the University of Delaware Physical Therapy Program. Brian is a physical therapist with Christiana Care Health Systems and serves as a clinical supervisor and adjunct faculty member for UD’s undergraduate Athletic Training Education Program. Brian along with his family would like to support the success of athletic training students. The Catania Family developed this award to recognize a junior athletic training student who has demonstrated an outstanding record of scholarship in the classroom and dedication in the athletic training room.
The student chosen for the Catania Family Athletic Training Academic Achievement Award must have the highest cumulative GPA through the winter semester of their junior year. This award will be chosen by the ATEP Steering Committee and will be awarded to the student rated most dedicated in the athletic training room.
The recipient will receive a $400.00 cash award, recognition certificate, and will have their name engraved on the perpetual wall plaque that hangs in the UD Athletic Training facility located in the Bob Carpenter Center. This student will also be formally recognized at the CHS Honors Day ceremony each May.
