A board is a moving objectCollege News — February 16, 2012
Terry Rizzo’s Jan. 1 appointment to the national board of directors of the American Kinesiology Association was not his New Year’s resolution to get more involved in promoting movement. He’s always been a man of motion.
A professor of kinesiology at Cal State San Bernardino since 1988, Rizzo is the editor of the Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly, an international scholarly journal related to physical activity. It is the official journal of the International Federation of Adapted Physical Activity. Besides his role with the journal, he is past president of the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. He’s also earned several professional awards, including the university’s prestigious Outstanding Professor Award and Golden Apple Award for excellence in teaching. He has served as a faculty mentor to student leaders and graduates of Cal State San Bernardino’s McNair Scholars Program, which prepares students from under-represented groups for advanced academic opportunities.
Rizzo was sworn in at the American Kinesiology Association’s annual board meeting in Dallas, Texas, in late January. He joined new fellow board members Michael Bemben, University of Oklahoma; Jason Carter, Michigan Technological University; Michael Delp, University of Florida; and Duane Knudson, Texas State University.
