Join us in welcoming Jordan Faimon to University School of Nashville as the Athletics Department’s first-ever, full-time athletic trainer.
By Sierra Smith, Communications Specialist
University School of Nashville welcomes Jordan Faimon as the new athletic trainer, a role in which he’ll work closely with USN athletes and coaches to manage all aspects of student-athletes’ medical care including preventative medicine, injury care, and recovery.
Faimon joins the Tigers from Elite Sports Medicine & Orthopedics. Prior to moving to Nashville, Faimon worked as a trainer at University of Oklahoma, American University, and South Dakota State University where he earned his master’s degree in sport and recreation studies. During his time at SDSU, he also served as a clinical instructor for entry-level graduate and undergraduate athletic training students. Additionally, Faimon has experience in facility management and talent acquisition. He is National Athletic Trainers Association Board certified and is licensed with the State of Tennessee Department of Health.
"Jordan's experience will be a huge asset to our students and families, and making this hiring move is indicative of our school's commitment to our student-athletes' wellbeing," Athletic Director Josh Scouten shared. "We're excited to have him here and are excited for the future of USN Athletics with him on our team."
Before USN hired Faimon, Vanderbilt provided USN with a part-time athletic trainer. USN will maintain its relationship with Vanderbilt Sports Medicine to provide additional care for student-athletes as needed.
Following Thanksgiving Break, all exterior doors will remain locked when school is in session — as per state law (Tennessee Code § 49-6-817). All families, vendors, and other guests must ring the doorbell at the 19th Avenue entrance and present an ID to enter USN. We also will welcome Sgt. Anthony Jones and Cpl. Robert Gibson as School Resource Officers patrolling the Edgehill Campus and the River Campus.
The Artclectic 2023 chairs recruited talented committee volunteers, selected participating artists, solicited sponsors, planned parties, and ensured that there was something for everyone at our annual art show. The result: in its 27-year history, only two shows resulted in more sales than Artclectic 2023.
USN Mission: University School of Nashville models the best educational practices. In an environment that represents the cultural and ethnic composition of Metropolitan Nashville, USN fosters each student’s intellectual, artistic, and athletic potential, valuing and inspiring integrity, creative expression, a love of learning, and the pursuit of excellence.
