Recreational therapy isn’t just about improving the life of your client. Whether you realize it or not, you are also improving yourself and your own life when working with such special individuals. I am so thankful for the amazing support system I have within SHAHS. Whether it’s your professors, clients, or even classmates, you will always take something special away from the interactions you have with them. That’s why I love what I do.
University of North Carolina Wilmington ’15
Meet Christopher Scott Cundari, the 2013 winner of the Earl Allen Scholarship. The Earl Allen Scholarship is named after Dr. Thomas Earl Allen, PhD, 1938-1993 whose service to University of North Carolina Wilmington spanned over 30 years. His contributions to the School of Health and Applied Human Sciences, including the establishment of the exercise physiology lab, were essential in the growth and development of the physical education and exercise science program. Christopher is a Spring 2014 Graduating Senior with aspirations to get his MS in Exercise Science after his undergraduate studies.
"I will take with me the knowledge I've gained from my professors and and the understanding that Exercise Science is an integral part of maintaining quality of life."
