2021-2022 Award Winners
“The Bruce Brown Award of Excellence”
Purpose: To recognize on-going and consistent efforts on the part of Ohio interscholastic athletic departments that demonstrate best practice in the endorsement and promotion of education-based athletic programming. Specifically, this award recognizes schools that demonstrate intentional efforts to shift the culture of school-based sport programs as an on-going process.
The name was changed to honor the first Executive Director of the OIAAA, Bruce Brown.
Provisions for submission of evidence:
Philosophy of Education-based Athletics:
The objective of the “Award of Excellence” is to recognize those Ohio interscholastic athletic departments who are purposefully educating and supporting the mission of education-based athletics in Ohio. Defining success based solely based upon “wins and losses” or the number of championship trophies a school/team possesses misses the mark of what our interscholastic athletic programs should be targeting. The award is designed to honor and celebrate those school athletic departments that are attempting to shift the sport culture toward the genuine purpose of why sports are a part of our school and community culture in America.
As such, the collection and submission of data is meant to be a reflection of what schools are already doing to underscore the mission of education-based athletics. To create a level of consistency and to maintain an appropriate level of professionalism, submission of school data should follow this protocol:

APPENDIX: B—Example of Sport-specific Cautionary Statement
BASKETBALL CAUTIONARY STATEMENT
Basketball is a highly competitive, fast-action game that places demands on the individual player. For this reason, coaches will implement conditioning regimens that are based on scientific principles, and designed to enhance player endurance, quickness and playing skills. While contact and rough play are prohibited by rule, a certain amount of inadvertent physical contact is predictable. To enhance stability and strength, certain weight room workouts may also be prescribed along with a regular practice activity. In addition, the following considerations and cautions will enhance player enjoyment and safety.
PREPARATION FOR ACTIVITY:
TRAVEL TO CONTEST/PRACTICE SITE
Because of the nature of basketball, some injuries will occur. All injuries must be called to a coach’s attention. Most will be minor and can be managed with basic first aid. However, an occasional situation may require more intense management and may also necessitate involvement of squad members as follows:
DO NOT move the victim! Assist by:

2021 SUMMER INSTITUTE
The past five summers’ “Summer Leadership Institute” have proved to be one of the most successful professional development opportunities for athletic administrators on record. Nearly 1,200 class roster spots were filled over three days of training the past four years which assisted school leaders in our interscholastic settings.
We will again be hosting this educational event in the summer of 2021! The Summer Institute is a collaborative project between the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (OIAAA) and the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and is scheduled for June 8, 9 and 10, 2021.
The purpose of the Summer Institute is to provide appropriate training and professional development for audiences directly involved with the education-based athletic programs within Ohio schools. Target audiences include, but are not limited to, newly appointed athletic administrators, experienced athletic administrators, coaches, building principals, superintendents and other school personnel who have a connection with school-based athletic programming.
With more and more attention being shifted toward the training and certification of Ohio athletic administrators, the Summer Institute can provide coursework credits toward RAA, CAA and CMAA certifications. Also, additional training will be provided to ensure a more comprehensive and knowledge-based of the OHSAA governance and proactive guidance through the individual sessions.
Below are courses for our 2021 Summer Institute. Look for specific course information and registration information coming to you this week through your OIAAA AMP account.

In 2020 six Ohio high school athletic departments were selected to receive the Annual Award of Excellence. The award, a collaboration between the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) and the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (OIAAA) recognizes schools that provide exemplary support and promotion of education-based athletic programming in their school and community.
These awards were to be given at the boys state basketball tourney that was cancelled. This was our former Executive Director Bruce Brown’s award that he created and with the help of the OHSAA presented at the last three state tournaments. Unfortunately Bruce was sick most of the 2020 year and passed in June. The award was not given and was forgotten. OIAAA would like to apologize for this oversight and award the six Athletic Administrators their awards. The award has been changed in name to the Bruce Brown Award of Excellence in honor of the man who created it and to remember the first Executive Director of the OIAAA.
Recipients of the award are Brunswick High School (John Justice, Athletic Administrator), Fort Frye High School (Barbara Sleek, Athletic Administrator), Plymouth High School (Josh Calame, Athletic Administrator), Shenandoah High School(Eric Sholtis, Athletic Administrator), Streetsboro High School (Randy Tevepaugh, Athletic Administrator) and Turpin High School (Tony Hemmelgard, Athletic Administrator).
The focus of the award is to recognize on-going and consistent efforts on the part of Ohio interscholastic athletic departments that demonstrate best practice in the endorsement and promotion of school-based athletic programming. Specifically, this award recognizes schools that demonstrate intentional efforts to exemplify the mission and culture of educational-based athletic programs as an on-going process.
Doug Ute, Executive Director of the OHSAA, Rick Guimond, President of the OIAAA and Glen Gillespie, Executive Director of the OIAAA issued the following joint statement on the presentation of the award: “Ohio Interscholastic athletic programs have always been considered some of the most exemplary programs in the country in reflecting the value our schools and communities place upon education-based sports. The recipients of the ‘Bruce Brown Award of Excellence‘ have demonstrated a consistent and well-developed plan to keep focus of their sport programs upon delivering life-long skills for all participants and mirroring the educational mission of their respective institutions.”
The OHSAA and the OIAAA believe there are several benchmarks which identify quality educational based athletic programs:
School athletic programs are inherently educational
School athletic programs compliment the educational experience
School athletic programs enhance the educational mission of the school
School athletic programs serve as an extension of the academic classroom
School athletic programs teach life lessons not regularly available in the academic classrooms
School athletic programs have courts, fields, tracks, pools and courses as teaching classrooms
Each of the recipient high schools will be honored in a ceremony at the OHSAA offices on March 1. For additional details on the “Award of Excellence” criteria, go to the OIAAA website ohioiaaa.org.
Please join us for the first Minority Athletic Directors Association of Ohio (MADA OH for short) zoom meeting on February 16th at 11:00 AM. We are excited about this initiative and look forward to sharing the vision! Please see the attached flyer for our special guests.

Renner is a member of the Southwest District Ohio Athletic Directors Association, the National Executive Directors Council and the state and national associations.

Executive Director Glen Gillespie echoed Rick’s statement while adding, “we already have a relationship through the help she has provided to the Leadership Training classes in the past. All of her duties will be worked out in the next few months but Julie has already started to make an impact with her wiliness to get involved”
