Never to Be Forgotten

Never to Be Forgotten

It is with heavy hearts we announce Daniel (Dan) Chappell, a Laker for a Lifetime, passed away on August 14, 2020.  Dan graduated from GVSU in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and Athletic Training.  Upon graduation, Dan worked as an athletic trainer for 35 years at East Kentwood High School.  During which time he was a preceptor to our program. He was dedicated to his family, our students, and our university.  Dan's huge heart will continue to give through the Dan Chappell `85 Athletic Training Memorial Scholarship.  An article through GVnext "Scholarship fund created in memory of longtime athletic trainer, graduate" has been published along with his funeral arrangements/obituary.  Thank you Dan for being a fantastic mentor, preceptor, alumni, and your years of service for the profession and our program.  You will be missed.
