Athletic Training Program
Moe and Irene Mellion Endowed Athletic Training Scholarship
A large component of the success of UNO Athletics and the maturation of the Athletic Training Program has been from the outstanding support of our medical staff and most importantly our Team Physicians. Moe Mellion, MD donated his time and expertise to the UNO family for nearly 19 years.
He has been instrumental in providing optimal health care to our student-athletes as well as in the education of our athletic training students. The time spent covering events, teaching classes and overseeing weekly clinics at UNO has come at the expense of his personal and family life. Although we realize that he treasures the time spent with our program and would not trade a single moment, we are indebted and grateful for the countless sacrifices he and his family made. In appreciation of the services and dedication Moe and Irene have given to UNO athletics, the Moe and Irene Mellion Endowed Athletic Training Scholarship was established for the students in the Athletic Training Program.
As a reflection of Moe and Irene's dedication and contributions to our program, two annual, non-renewable $500.00 scholarships will be awarded based on a student's service to the Athletic Training Program reflecting their performance in both the academic and clinical setting.
