CHSAA selects Angelico as new commissioner for 2010-11
The Colorado High School Activities Association will be under new leadership beginning in the 2010-2011 school year
Thursday at the CHSAA Board of Control meeting in Denver, Paul Angelico, the current associate commissioner, was introduced as the association’s eighth commissioner.
“The goal of the CHSAA Executive Committee was to find a person that would move into the commissioner’s position seamlessly and we believe that Paul Angelico fits that role,” CHSAA President Shelli Miles said Thursday in a news release. “We have great confidence in Paul’s abilities as an administrator.”
Angelico takes over for Bill Reader, who is retiring at the end of this school year after eight years as CHSAA’s commissioner.
“Today, more than ever, I believe our kids need to be involved in the activities that we provide,” Angelico said in the release. “My goal is to ensure that the CHSAA continues to serve as a leader for our school membership and to help them keep sports and activities educationally-centered.”
Angelico has been with the association since 1990, serving as assistant commissioner until 2002 when he was promoted to associate commissioner. Before that, Angelico was at Air Academy High School as the activities director from 1979-89.
Athletically, Angelico’s background is in gymnastics, serving as the coach at Coronado High School, then Air Academy, from 1977-89.
Angelico will be leading CHSAA into continued growth as the 90-year-old governing body expands to 340 schools in 2010-2011.
“We believe that under Paul’s leadership, the association will continue to grow and serve the membership,” Miles said.
“The committee believes that Paul has the vision and leadership abilities to keep the organization moving forward in a manner that keeps the interests of the students at the forefront.”
