In recognition of his more than 30 years as the head athletic trainer at Southeastern Louisiana University, Robert “Doc” Goodwin is being honored for his support of Southeastern athletics and mentorship to its students through the establishment of the Robert W. "Doc" Goodwin Athletics Training Fund.
A group of lead donors who are establishing the fund were on hand at the announcement of the fund's founding.
Southeastern graduate Ron Anderson led the effort to establish the endowment, which will be used for general support of the athletic program. Anderson, who owns Collegiate Consulting, LLC, was a student-athlete on Southeastern’s track team in the early 1990s.
Athletic Director Jay Artigues praised Goodwin for his service to the university, including the instrumental role he played in helping to create the university’s athletic training program and the North Oaks Sports Medicine program. An alumnus of Southeastern, Goodwin has received the Alumni Association’s Distinguished Service Award, the L.E. Chandler Award f0r service to students and Southeastern’s Presidents Award for Excellence in Service.
Goodwin has been inducted into the Louisiana Athletic Trainers Association Hall of Fame and has received the Louisiana Sports Medicine Society’s Jim Finks Award and the National Athletic Trainers Association District IXS Service Awards.
