Whereas, each December, the Senate recognizes the positive contributions of interscholastic athletic administrators;

Whereas the position of school athletic administrator is recognized as a profession, which, like other academic professions, benefits greatly from continued education and certification;

Whereas school athletic programs develop young people physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally by the life lessons learned through participation and competition;

Whereas interscholastic athletic participation is an integral part of a student’s educational experience and enhances the learning and maturation process;

Whereas athletic administrators are committed to developing and maintaining comprehensive education-based athletic programs which seek the highest development of all student athletes;

Whereas athletic administrators fulfill professional responsibilities with integrity, commitment to equality, industriousness to long hours, and fairness;

Whereas athletic administrators preserve, enhance, and promote the educational values of athletics in our schools through professional growth in the areas of education, leadership, and service;

Whereas athletic administrators embody high standards of ethics, sportsmanship, and personal conduct and encourage coaching staffs, student athletes, and community members to commit to these high standards as well; and

Whereas the athletic programs run by these administrators have impacts that extend well beyond the playing field, athletic venues, and even the school: Now, therefore, be it

That the Senate—


supports the annual recognition of Interscholastic Athletic Administrators’ Day on December 14, 2021;


commends athletic administrators for their commitment and leadership provided to student athletes at the secondary school level; and
