Often when looking at sports programs you may notice the star athletes, possibly the clean jerseys the team wears, or the coaches. However, behind it all are the athletic trainers that make sure those athletes stay on the field in those fashionable jerseys and they definitely keep the coaches in check. At Hebron it is no different, Ms Raymond, who unchoicefully goes by Ms. D or Ms. Desmos keeps all the sports teams in line and healthy. Whether it be one of the Soccer players trying to get out of running sprints or another one of the countless Hockey injuries she is always there to fix you up and pester you about doing your rehab. However, she doesn’t limit herself to getting mad at the players, the coaches get their fair share of her thoughts. Although Ms. D is able to see through everyone’s antics and is happy to voice her opinions on it, she is always there for everyone. Her door is always open and practically everyday students will come to her for any range of help whether it be advice in personal life to being taped up for practice or just to grab ice and say “hi”. I personally account for many visits for all varieties and I know many others can as well.
So from Hebron Academy to you Ms Raymond(Desmos), Thank you for everything you do and have done for our community.
