The National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association announced this week that Chad Suddeth, athletic director at Rockdale County High School, has been recognized by the association as a Certified Athletic Administrator.

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

Suddeth is one of an elite group of interscholastic athletic administrators nationwide to attain this level of professionalism. He heads up a Rockdale athletic program that enjoys success in competition, and also recently won the Region 8-AAAAAAA Sportsmanship Award after voting from the other region schools.

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.
