It wasnâ€™t that long ago that Kane native Trisha Wright was fulfilling a dream as the first athletic trainer in the Kane Area School District.

Most often, Wright was just another spectator at school athletic events.
â€śYou hope youâ€™re not busy,â€ť she said.
A 1994 graduate of Kane High School, Wright served as the school district athletic trainer for 12 1/2 years between 1998 and 2010.Â
