DEN­TON — Brett Ire­land, ath­letic di­rec­tor at Colonel Richard­son High School, was re­cently rec­og­nized by the Na­tional In­ter­scholas­tic Ath­letic Ad­min­is­tra­tors As­so­ci­a­tion (NIAAA) as a cer­ti­fied ath­letic ad­min­is­tra­tor.

To earn this dis­tinc­tion, Ire­land had to demon­strate the high­est level of knowl­edge and ex­per­tise in the field of in­ter­scholas­tic ath­letic ad­min­is­tra­tion. The voluntary cer­ti­fi­ca­tion process in­cluded a thor­ough eval­u­a­tion of Ire­land’s ed­u­ca­tional back­ground, ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­fes­sional con­tri­bu­tions, as well as a rig­or­ous com­pre­hen­sive writ­ten ex­am­i­na­tion.

”Mr. Ire­land is a cham­pion of ed­u­ca­tion-based ath­let­ics pro­grams and pro­mot­ing sports­man­ship in our high school ath­let­ics pro­grams,” said Dr. Derek Sim­mons, Caro­line County Pub­lic Schools di­rec­tor of stu­dent ser­vices. “This cer­ti­fi­ca­tion rep­re­sents his ef­forts to deepen his knowl­edge and skills to strengthen high school ath­letic pro­grams at Colonel Richard­son High School.”

Ac­cord­ing to the NIAAA news re­lease, Ire­land is one of an elite group of in­ter­scholas­tic ath­letic ad­min­is­tra­tors na­tion­wide to at­tain this level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism.

The NIAAA is a na­tional pro­fes­sional or­ga­ni­za­tion con­sist­ing of all 50 state ath­letic ad­min­is­tra­tor as­so­ci­a­tions and more than 10,000 in­di­vid­ual mem­bers, ded­i­cated to pro­mot­ing the pro­fes­sional growth of high school ath­letic ad­min­is­tra­tors and pre­serv­ing the ed­u­ca­tional na­ture of in­ter­scholas­tic ath­let­ics and the place of th­ese pro­grams in the sec­ondary school cur­ricu­lum.
