The Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (OIAAA) has approved the nominations of three new positions to their Board of Directors. The newly created Board positions include Female Representative to the Board, Ethnic-Minority Representative to the Board and Middle School Representative to the Board.
The new Board positions were approved by a unanimous vote of the OIAAA general membership in November, 2018 at the annual OIAAA state conference for interscholastic athletic administrators. The nominees were approved by the OIAAA Board of Directors at their recent (March 10, 2019) Board meeting.
Nominees approved by the Board include:
- Female Representative: Heather Beck, athletic administrator at Elyria City Schools.
- Ethnic-Minority Representative: Jason Goings, athletic administrator at Ashland City Schools
- Middle School Representative: Heath O’Neal, athletic coordinator, Dublin Karrer Middle School
Each of these new positions will be voting members of the OIAAA Board of Directors and will assume their two-year appointment beginning July 1, 2019 with the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
OIAAA President, Bo Hanson of Pickerington Central High School stated, “We appreciate our general membership’s approval of these new Board positions. By adding these positions to our Board of Directors, we will better serve our ever-expanding membership needs. As we have grown into the nation’s largest state interscholastic athletic directors’ association, we need to insure that all elements of our education-based athletic administration are being heard and assisted. These newest members will add great vision for our association.”
