There are always opportunities for parents to get involved with their child’s school activities. For Amber Sawyers, bringing her skill set to the training staff at Southeast of Saline is what made the most sense.
“I am an athletic trainer and Physician Assistant in Orthopedics. I love athletics and so giving back to take care of athletes is something I love to do,” said Sawyers.
As a PA for the varsity boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, Sawyers has the opportunity to have a front row seat to watch her oldest son Eli play basketball. Alec is a freshman at Southeast of Saline and is a wrestler. Kain, a sixth grader and Colt, a fourth grader, both play football, basketball, and baseball for teams in the area.
“I have been involved with all sports. Since starting work in Salina, I have worked on the sidelines of football games as well as state volleyball, basketball, and wrestling. I am always available and have been approached to look at kids at many events,” said Sawyers. “I just love helping athletes and making sure they can compete.”
The mom of four encourages other parents to get involved and enjoy watching their kids.
“You need to be involved with what your kids do. It keeps you connected to them and their friends and what is going on,” said Sawyers.
