Manchester student picked for Indiana health and physical educators scholarship

Casey ArseneauThe Indiana Society for Health and Physical Educators (INSHAPE) has selected a Manchester University student for the 2019 Jean Lee/Jeff Marvin Collegiate Scholarship.

Casey Arseneau of Donovan, Ill., has served at Manchester as a Fellowship of Christian Athletes executive board member, a volunteer with the Center for Service Opportunities, a Student Orientation Leader and library desk assistant.

“Physical education chose me,” she said. “In one of my classes, we teach homeschooled kids physical education every Thursday. Going through this class and observing other classes in the local schools showed me how much physical education can positively impact students in a variety of ways. I look forward to empowering students to make healthy lifestyle choices and build interpersonal skills.”
She is on track to graduate in 2021, and plans to begin her career teaching physical education and health education. She is interested in coaching, and her goals include earning a master’s degree in sport management and becoming an athletic director.

A longer-term objective is to transition to the role of elementary school teacher before she retires and mentor the next generation of teaching professionals.

Each year, INSHAPE awards up to six $1,000 academic scholarships to undergraduate students enrolled full time in an Indiana college or university. Recipients will be recognized at the INSHAPE Hall of Fame Banquet on Nov. 3 at the Grand Park Events Center in Westfield, Ind., during the association’s state conference.

The scholarship is for expenses associated with tuition and books for the 2019-2020 school year. Recipients major in health, physical education, recreation, dance, sport administration or exercise science.

“Our association has a rich tradition of recognizing and supporting the next generation of teaching professionals,” said Gary Lemke, INSHAPE executive director.

INSHAPE also selected students from Butler University, Indiana University, Indiana State University, Purdue University and University of Indianapolis for the honor.
