WC’s athletic director Kevin Weakley was recently recognized by the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association as one of their “Athletic Directors of the Year.” The following is a write-up on Weakley featured at the OIAAA Awards Luncheon:
“Kevin Weakley graduated from Worthington Christian High school in 1995. In 1999 he graduated from Otterbein University and earned his Master’s Degree from Nova Southeastern University in 2001. Returning to Worthington Christian following graduation from college, Weakley has spent his entire 18-year career at the school. His first six years were spent as the physical education and health teacher at the high school. The last 12 years he has served as the school’s athletic director. During this time, Weakley has also coached the boys basketball team at Worthington Christian. Last year in his 18th season, he led his program to its 300th win during his tenure as head coach.
In 2012, Worthington Christian played its first football game. In 2014 the school competed in its first Varsity contest. Weakley spearheaded fundraising efforts that led to the start of a football program at his alma mater. During his tenure, he has also started a bowling program and girls golf program. He has also been involved in a building project at the football stadium, upgrading scoreboards at each facility, a weight room renovation and a significant locker room upgrade.
Weakley is a member of the National Athletic Administrators’ Association (NIAAA), Ohio Interscholastic Athletics Administrators’ Association (OIAAA) and the Central District Athletic Administrators’ Association (COIAA). He was the recipient of the 2008 Horizon Award in the Central District, an award presented to an active athletic administrator who has demonstrated in their first three years signs of professionalism and involvement, and has made a difference in their school and conference. Weakley resides in Westerville with his wife Anne Marie. They have three children who attend Worthington Christian Schools, Katherine a sophomore, Megan an eighth 8th grader, and Grant a fourth grader.”
Congratulations, Coach Weakley, and thank you for all your hard work and service to WC!
