The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) Board of Control named Dave Anderson as the next executive director of the association. Anderson is being introduced at a media conference this morning at the Kohl Center in Madison.
The 55 year old Anderson (pictured) had been deputy director and will fill the vacancy created by the impending retirement of Doug Chickering, effective August 1. Anderson becomes just the fifth executive director since the position was created back in 1924.
During his 11 years with the WIAA, Anderson has been responsible for student-athlete eligibility, officials licensing, interpretation of rules, tourament administration and planning, and committee leadership in the sports of football, baseball, wrestling, hockey and softball, as well as the medical advisory committee and wrestling's seven-percent committee.
Anderson served as athletic director at Sun Prairie High School from 1991 until joining the WIAA. The Kaukauna native began his career as a faculty member at D.C. Everest High School in Schofield from 1976 to 1979.
