On my first day at Sage Hill School I showed up early. I was excited and nervous on my first day so I thought early was best. I was so early that I had to wait around for Coach Tolver to show up and let me into the Athletic Training Room because I didn't have keys yet. Getting there early was important so that I could start to inventory my supplies in the short time before football practices began later that morning. As I was going through the cupboards and looking under the tables I found a lot of things. Some things were obviously trash, some things were going to be useful, and I had no idea why some things were in that room! As I was finishing my inventory, a student athlete ran into the room and in one big rush blurts out "Are you Trainer Meaghan?!!" I remember shaking my head, probably squinting my eyes as I surveyed the student and tried to make sense of his question and replied, "Well I'm your new Athletic Trainer and my name is Meaghan, so I guess I'm Trainer Meaghan."
From that moment on the name some how stuck and it still amazes me at times. Everyone was calling me Trainer Meaghan so soon after my arrival that I even had a wonderful parent order me a couple of shirts on which they embroidered the name "Trainer Meaghan" by the end of the football season. I knew that the name had 'stuck' but I didn't quite realize how much it would become my name (and I think it's a huge honor by the way). Over five years later it is a huge part of me, who I am, and who I strive to be every day.
When I had an assignment in a technology course to create a blog I thought long and hard about what to name it. Did I want a personal blog? One I could use for work? I finally decided on a work blog and after lots of suggestions from friends and a few students....Just ask T-Meg was born! After all, that's what I ask of our student athletes....Wondering about something related to Sage Hill School Athletics? What games are on campus this week? Do you have a question about an injury? Are you wondering why you're sore and how to help yourself be less so? Well.....Just Ask T-Meg!!
I'll always do my best answer your questions or find you the answers you're looking for.
