Wildcats News · Meet Our Athletic Trainer – Ashley Salyer


As a result of a partnership with OhioHealth, Kenton City Schools was able to add a dedicated Athletic Trainer to our athletic program beginning with the 2019-2020 school year. Ashley Salyer joined the Wildcat family at the beginning of last school year and has made a meaningful impact to the health and safety of our student-athletes. She is here daily, mostly in the evenings, for practices/games, and works regularly with our student-athletes keeping them healthy and ready to compete. Thank-you to Ashley and to OhioHealth for providing an incredible service to our students!
