Ray Carrol Award 1GREENVILLE, Ky. (7/14/17) — A staff member at Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital has earned statewide recognition, being named Kentucky’s High School Athletic Trainer of the Year.

Ray Carroll was nominated for the Kentucky Athletic Trainers’ Society award by Owensboro Health Athletic Training Supervisor Ted Evans. The nomination was signed and supported by 10 other Owensboro Health physicians, advance practice clinicians and staff members, as well as community athletic and school staff.

“He definitely cares for his athletes a tremendous amount. He doesn't look at it just as job. He doesn't see them just as athletes. He sees them as his patients and the kids that they are. He cares about them a lot, and you can see that when he's working,” Evans said.

Shelby Cotton, director of Therapy Services at Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital, said she endorsed Carroll because of the type of person he is and the work he does.

“I am so happy for Ray to receive the recognition he deserves for all of the years of hard work toward caring for student athletes. I am proud that Ray is a member of our team,” Cotton said.

Carroll said he didn’t expect the recognition from his peers and coworkers, and that Muhlenberg County has been a great community in which to work.

“It's been very special and I'm still riding the wave. What it means for me personally is they love me as much as I love them,” Carroll said. “I just love the people. They're good people. They've always been good to me.”
