NAK Legacy Society Estate Designation Form

The National Academy of Kinesiology Legacy Society honors the five original members of the Academy:

  1. Clark W. Hetherington, champion of developmental play and educational athletics;
  2. R. Tait McKenzie, physician, scholar, and sculptor, who created the Academy medallion, the Gulick Medal, and many
    pieces of sport art;
  3. William Burdick, city recreation specialist and administrator; Thomas A. Storey, physician, health
    educator, and first New York State Supervisor of physical education; and
  4. Jay B. Nash, philosopher of recreation and
    advocate of the development of the “whole person” through creative leisure.

These five individuals, whose names distinguish the history of American physical education, met in New York City in 1926 to initiate action which led to the founding of the present National Academy of Kinesiology.

Membership is open to those who have designated the National Academy of Kinesiology in their estate plans. Any size commitment qualifies an individual for membership. In addition to helping ensure the long-term financial viability of the Academy, members have the opportunity to motivate others to designate the Academy in an estate plan or support the Academy during their lifetimes.
