Sandy Freres has played an instrumental role in the development of Prairie’s Athletic Programs. For over 32 years, she’s served as a role model amongst our faculty and students and a leader on Prairie’s campus, the Racine community and the athletic community at both the local and state level.
This coming Monday, December 15 she will be recognized by The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) at the 45th annual National Athletic Directors Conference sponsored jointly by the NFHS and the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA). She will be recognized amongst a total of eight athletic directors around that nation for her contributions to interscholastic athletics at the local, state and national levels.
Head of School Nat Coffman shares, “Sandy is the hardest working most committed athletic administrator I have ever encountered. She is truly a master teacher whose love for her students and desire to help each and every one of them be his or her best self is joyfully contagious and a model for all of us.”
Please join us in congratulating Sandy on an outstanding accomplishment!
