Dr. Michael McKenzie, associate professor of exercise science and chair of Winston-Salem State University’s (WSSU) Department of Human Performance, was recently elected to serve a three-year term as President-Elect of the Southeast American College of Sports Medicine (SEACSM) during its two-day meeting in Greenville, S.C. recently.

“I am very excited to serve as President of SEACSM. SEACSM is by far the largest regional chapter and historically has produced some of the most celebrated leaders at both the regional and national level,” said McKenzie.  “To see my name on a list with some of them is truly hum-bling.  Finally, as someone who has all three degrees from within the SEACSM footprint, it is indeed an honor to be elected to this position even more so, because I remember attending this meeting as a student.  President was just something that seemed so unattainable to the 25-year-old me, and now here I am. I am very honored and excited indeed.”

McKenzie began his work at WSSU in 2007. He holds degrees from Appalachian State University, the University of Florida, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Additionally, he is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS). His research and publications involve oxidative stress, as well as high intensity exercise. Dr. McKenzie also has a large focus on undergraduate research and is the director of undergraduate research at WSSU as well.

In 2015, the North Carolina Board of Governors selected McKenzie as a recipient of the UNC Excellence in Teaching Award.
