Dr. Steve May, Assistant Principal for Student Activities at Wheeling High School, is the recipient of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association's (NIAAA) 2012-13 State Award of Merit for Illinois. Each state annually presents this prestigious award to an NIAAA member who demonstrates outstanding leadership and meritorious service and achievement in the vocation of interscholastic administration.
Dr. May has been the athletic administrator at Wheeling High School and member of the NIAAA and the Illinois Athletic Directors Association (IADA) for the past 12 years. During that time, he has served on the IADA board and an NIAAA committee. He will be honored at the IADA state conference in Peoria in May, where he will receive the Award of Merit.
"I enjoy working in the field of athletic administration and am honored to be chosen for this award by my peers in athletic administration throughout the state," commented May.
The NIAAA champions the profession of athletic administration through educational opportunities, advocating ethics, developing leaders and fostering community.
