The Knox Community School Board approved the athletic trainer contract for the next school year:

“The LaPorte Regional Health system supplies the trainer, in this case it’s Heather Skelly, who has been with us for a number of years, and we help support that contract,” said Superintendent, A.J. Gappa. “And with prices going up, we had to sign a new contract and the Board did approve that so we have our trainer for another year at least and that’s a good thing.”

Superintendent A.J. Gappa and Board Vice President, Mary Lynn Ritchie, commented that the trainer is helpful as the athlete can go to the trainer to ask about an injury and the trainer can give a specific diagnosis and treatment.
