Athletics entering a new day in Adair Schools
By Linda Waggener
In a special announcement by Superintendent Pamela Stephens and ACHS Principal Chad Parnell Tuesday, the School District has a new Athletic Director - Craig Biggs - a native of Adair County who brings "years of experience and a heart for home to the job."
Dr. Stephens said she and the group who interviewed candidates for the position and ultimately selected Craig are very excited to see this "former ACHS Indian" put his vast experience to work in the interest of students. His duties in the new job begin in Columbia on July 5, 2022.
He brings experience in the field, most recently as Sales Pro for BSN Sports, and in college athletics from his position as Associate Athletic Director at Western Kentucky University.
He will be in charge of all ACHS sports programs: Football, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Track and Cross Country, Volleyball, Tennis, Golf, Swimming, as well as middle school corresponding sports in many of those areas. He wants, "more opportunities for all kids."
He said, "this feels like coming home." Both Craig and his father, Roy Biggs before him, were in athletics as students in Adair County schools.
He said, "I am looking forward to playing a vital part in development of Adair County public schools athletics." His first steps will be to ask each coach their top five needs and then see how those are being met before setting out goals for the future.
Finding ways to generate revenue will be a part of the new position. Although, he said, whatever is needed, from ticket sales on game day to fundraising, will be a part of his work.
Craig and his wife, Stacey, who is EVP of Marketing, Planning & Development at T.J. Regional Health, and also an ACHS graduate and Adair native, live in Glasgow.
