Administrative Support for Athletic Training – 313

Fred Roberts is a long time school board member in Pasadena ISD.

His message is simple: “Educate us on what you do.  I don't know what you do because you haven't told me” He also says “Don't seek to sway or change my mind but to educate”

If they have no idea who we are or what we do it is our fault for not educating them or inviting them in to our lives.

Jesse Lopez at Dobie helped Fred Roberts get over an injury and opened up a line of communication.  Building relationships is as simple as giving away gear or shaking a hand and introducing yourself.  take each opportunity to build relationships.
