Former athletic trainer Joe Camillone, who retired in August, was awarded the Dr. Donald Grover Memorial Award by the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) in September. The ECAC bestows the award each year to a trainer who has achieved outstanding success in his or her career and made an unusual contribution in the interest of intercollegiate athletics.
For 35 years, Camillone dedicated himself to the safety and betterment of Lion student-athletes, so it was on these athletes’ behalf that TCNJ established the Joe Camillone Athletic Training Room Endowment Fund. The fund will provide financial support for the College’s athletic training and sports medicine needs. Upon the attainment of gifts totaling $25,000, the fund will become permanent, and will honor Camillone in perpetuity via the renaming of the Athletic Training Room in his honor. Gifts for the fund, or questions related to it, can be directed the development office at 609.771.2393.
