The TWLDP Program is named after longtime member (40 years), Tom Waugh.  Tom was active in the association during his many years of practice as a physical therapist in the El Paso area. He was known across the United States due to his many years as a Delegate for the Texas Chapter at APTA's House of Delegates.  Everyone who knew him felt his passion for the profession and Leadership Development.  He mentored many students and professionals throughout the years.  Tom passed away in April, 2012 after battling cancer.
