GBS Athletic Director Steve Rockrohr has been named the 2016-17 3A/4A Athletic Director of the Year by the Illinois Athletic Directors Association (IADA). He was presented with the award May 7 in Peoria.
Steve has been the GBS athletic director for the past 15 years. In 2015, he received the State Award of Merit from the IADA.
“I’m just thankful for the opportunity I have to work with the students, coaches, and administration at GBS and District 225,” Steve said of the honor.
GBS Principal Lauren Fagel said Steve is a “dedicated member of the IADA and a trusted member of the GBS administrative team.”
“I am honored to work with such an experienced and effective athletic director,” Lauren said. “Steve focuses on creating opportunities for students, and, as he likes to say, ‘clearing the way for coaches.’”
