WSU physical education program earns accolades at KAHPERD convention

Students, faculty and staff from Wichita State’s physical education program attended the Kansas Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (KAHPERD) convention Nov. 9-10 at Century II in Wichita, where they won the KAHPERD College Bowl, an event with three rounds (two activity and one quiz) in which all the attending physical education programs compete for a prestigious traveling trophy. The last time WSU won the trophy was in 2018.

In addition to winning the College Bowl, Sarah Schaar, senior, physical education major, was voted in as president-elect for the Future Professionals Committee, and Olivia Butler, program coordinator, earned an event management position on the executive board during the KAHPERD convention.
