DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Over the weekend, one of Dothan's most successful athletes received the accolades of the city's mayor.
Mayor Mark Saliba recognized Febuary 9th as Kasey Cooper day in the Circle City. From Dothan high school, Kasey Cooper would become a four-time All-SEC selection at Auburn University.
In 2016, she was an Academic All-American and two-time SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year majoring in Mechanical Engineering. This Summer, she'll be leaving team USA to go to medical school at UAB.
Kasey says once she obtains her medical degree, she could see herself coming back to the Wiregrass to practice medicine.
