(Indianapolis, IN) - Ed Gilliland recently retired as LaPorte High School’s athletic director, but his talents are being put back to work for the Indiana High School Athletic Association.
Gilliland has been appointed IHSAA Associate Commissioner.
It’s a newly created part-time position that will allow Gilliland to represent the IHSAA in the northern half of the state. Specifically he will help mentor new athletic administrators, help recruit officials, and provide support at tournament events and IHSAA meetings.
It's a good fit for Gilliland, who is not new to statewide athletic matters. For the past seven years, he has served on the IHSAA Executive Committee, and was chair of the committe in 2017-18.
And Ed’s not moving away. He and his wife Marie will continue to live here in La Porte.
