Jamie Sheetz, Park City High School’s athletics and activities director, has been recognized by the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) as a Certified Master Athletic Administrator.
To earn this distinction, Sheetz demonstrated exemplary knowledge, contributions and on-going professional development in the field of interscholastic athletic administration. The voluntary certification process included a thorough evaluation of the candidate’s educational background, experience, NIAAA Leadership Courses and professional contributions. It is culminated with a practical written project.
“With fewer than 800 interscholastic athletic directors ever earning the CMAA certification designation from the NIAAA, it is certainly an honor and privilege to have achieved that mark,” Sheetz said.
The NIAAA is a national professional organization consisting of all 50 state athletic administrator associations and more than 10,000 individual members. It is 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.
“The NIAAA offers over 45 professional development courses that promote best practices and continuing education for interscholastic athletic administrators,” Sheetz said. “Membership in, and certification through, the NIAAA demonstrates an interscholastic athletic administrators commitment to offering quality education-based athletic programs in the schools and communities in which they serve.”
