WYE MILLS – Stacey Scarborough, a physical therapist assistant student at Chesapeake College, is the 2006 Outstanding Physical Therapist Assistant Student, as named by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

Scarborough was selected for the award by the APTA Student Assembly, which presents the award each year to one physical therapist assistant student who demonstrates excellence in academic and clinical performance, leadership skills and community activities.

She has undertaken a lot of responsibilities outside of school, including serving as president of the Physical Therapist Assistant Club at Chesapeake College, Anne Arundel Community College, and College of Southern Maryland for the past two years. She has organized field trips and class outings to several physical therapy clinics and to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. She remains very active in the APTA and attended national and local level student conclaves," said Dave Thomas, director of the PTA program. "I am very proud to have her as a graduate of the program and look forward to calling her a peer in physical therapy."

Scarborough, who will receive her associate´s degree from Chesapeake on May 24, said she hopes to begin her career in physical therapy soon after graduation.
