As a graduate of Minerva High School, I am proud to be coming home as the new Athletic Director. I would first like to thank Mr. Spinell for the years of dedicated service to the student athletes of Minerva Local Schools. I hope to continue the tradition of helping provide as many opportunities as possible for the children of Minerva.
The mission of Minerva High School is to develop every student to graduate prepared to enter one of three pathways:
- Further their education at a college or technical school
- Enter the workforce with a skill they have acquired through R.G. Drage, our career-technical school
- Serve our Nation in the United States Military
The mission of Minerva Athletics is to support these pathways by instilling values and experiences that the young men and women of Minerva can draw on the rest of their lives to be productive citizens, good parents, and proud Lions for life.
The core of every sports program should be the development of the following:
- Coping with Adversity
- Develop Healthy Competitiveness
Every decision we make involving our student athletes should revolve around the goal of creating young adults that are productive members of society. Winning and losing is not always the measure of success. The health of our community, country and world is dependent on the development of strong young leaders.
