A 2003 WWU graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in athletic training, Harbour lives in Fulton. She is employed at the Sam B. Cook Healthplex Fitness Center in Jefferson City, Mo., as an exercise specialist and aerobics coordinator.

This award honors outstanding achievement and leadership within the fitness community, which Harbour exemplifies in every way. She is actively pursuing an advanced degree and basic life support (BLS) instructor training, which recently allowed her to assist a Healthplex member and save his life.

She will also be featured in an issue of MFA’s newsletter. She also received September’s Shining Star of the Month Award at Capital Regional Medical Center.
