APE Recieves Program Recognition Award

The SUNY Cortland Adapted Physical Education (APE) Program received the Program Recognition Award at the 2008 AAHPERD Convention. The Award was presented to our faculty (Diane Craft, John Foley, Tim Davis, Luis Columna) in April 2008 from the Adapted Physical Activity Council (APAC) of the American Association for Physical Activity and Recreation (AAPAR). Given in recognition of significant contributions to the promotion of physical activity to individuals with disabilities, our APE program was one of only two nationally recognized programs this year. Congratulations to all our faculty, staff, students, and community members that make our outstanding outreach programs possible.
