wentzellProfessor of Health and Physical education Dr. Spud Wentzell has considered his teaching goal to be providing guidance for students’ overall health and physical abilities. Wentzell recognizes students have diverse capabilities and interests. Not all of them are interested in being competitive or particularly active.

Through his class, Philosophy of Consistent Movement, he has been able to encourage all students to empower themselves through being active. He views physical education as promoting health-related physical fitness. It goes beyond the exercise and includes healthy life choices.

“Being active can influence how we think and how we function,” Wentzell said. “There’s not an isolated benefit. Some people think of playing a sport or just being active but they have no purpose. It is good stewardship to recognize that one of the first things that we all need to do is be good stewards of our body and maintain ourselves to serve the Lord.”
