University of North Georgia Gainesville campus Vice President Richard Oates has been named a National Association for Kinesiology in Higher Education fellow.
Oates, who has been a member of NAKHE for more than 20 years, is one of only 30 professionals to be selected for this honor since 2015. A NAKHE fellow is awarded to acknowledged leaders in kinesiology.
“The fellows are people I look up to,” Oates said. “I read their research and their books. To be in that same category, I just have no words.”
