Meet MSUM’s new athletic trainer, Ben Spurgeon. He is here to help student athletes recover from injuries and stay happy and healthy.
Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: I was a graduate assistant at Minot State University, so I was familiar with MSUM and the athletic department here. I thought it seemed like it would be a great place to work and so far, it definitely has been.
Q: What is your favorite part about MSUM so far?
A: The people I work with. Everyone has been really welcoming so far. I really enjoy being here.
Q: What energizes you at work?
A: Working with a bunch of great people. I like being able to help people get back to doing what they love.
Q: What energizes you outside of work?
A: I’m a huge sports fan. I also like to read and exercise.
Q: What book are you currently reading?
A: I am currently reading a biography of George Washington. I haven’t gotten too far into it yet but it’s very interesting so far, so I’m looking forward to the rest of it.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
A: I would like to go to Greece; from what I’ve seen it’s beautiful there.
Q: What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
A: Probably just keeping it low-key and staying at home watching some kind of sporting event on TV.
