Baylor headmaster Scott Wilson has been named District 3's School System Administrator of the Year as part of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association's A.F. Bridges Awards program, given for "displaying high ideals of integrity and ethics and for examples of citizenship and sportsmanship."
The A.F. Bridges Awards program includes awards for School System Administrator of the Year, Principal of the Year, Athletic Director of the Year, Female Coach of the Year, Male Coach of the Year, Official of the Year, and Contributor of the Year. The awards recognize 63 individuals from across the state, one in each category and in each of the nine athletic districts. Nominations are made by a Citizenship/Sportsmanship Committee and member schools in each district with the final selections being made by a State Selection Committee.
Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA stated, “Being recognized for one of these awards as a school or individual should be seen as one of the highest honors in high school athletics in our state. Those who receive the awards truly reflect what high school athletics should be about, and that’s good sportsmanship and good citizenship.”
