Oswego High School Athletic Director Darren Howard has achieved the rank of Certified Master Athletic Administrator, the highest designation achievable through the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA).

Howard is among a very elite group of interscholastic athletic administrators nationwide to attain this rigorous designation, and has demonstrated exemplary knowledge, contributions, and on-going professional development in the field of interscholastic athletic administration.

“Mr. Howard is the consummate professional and works very hard at making sure Oswego Athletics are among the best in the state and country,” said Oswego High School Principal Mike Wayne. “We are very fortunate to have him leading our athletic programming.”

 “I’m very pleased to have attained this prized designation,” said Howard, who has been the athletic director at Oswego High School since 2012.

The voluntary certification process includes an evaluation of each candidate's educational background, experience, NIAAA leadership courses, and professional contributions, and requires each applicant to complete a practical written project.

The NIAAA is a national professional organization consisting of all 50 state athletic administrator associations with more than 10,000 individual members. It is dedicated to promoting the professional growth of high school athletic administrators and preserving the educational nature of interscholastic athletics and the place these programs have in the secondary school curriculum.
