Congratulations to our 2017 CHSSA Hall of Fame Inductee

Mikendra McCoy has officially joined the ranks of the CHSSA Hall of Fame. Over the many years of her career Mikendra has seen success at the state and national level, served as league president of the Southern Valley Forensic League, and currently sits on the CHSSA board as the Commissioner of Public Relations. To Mikendra nothing is as important as the impact that coaching has on students, and the joy of seeing students using the skills from speech and debate in their lives. A well-deserved congratulations to Mikendra McCoy!

2017-18 CHSSA Board Elections

Every year the CHSSA board holds elections to determine the members of the executive council. President, VP Activities, VP Curriculum, and Area Chairs are some of the key positions that are voted on every year. These members of the council are imperative in determining the course of the organization. In order to increase transparency we have attached statements from each candidate below. All of our coaches are eligible to vote for the Area Chair that they want to represent their area. We also request that you communicate any feelings you have about our President candidates, and our VP Curriculum candidates to your league CHSSA representatives so that their vote can be reflective of the will of their league. Thank you very much for your continued support of CHSSA.

May 2017 By-Law Proposals

Pursuant to the by-laws, all by-law alterations must receive a majority vote from the CHSSA council in order to go into effect. In order to increase transparency, and to include more of our coaches in the discussion process, by-laws will now be posted before each meeting. It is our hope that you will discuss these changes with your leagues, and offer advice to your CHSSA council representatives on how they should vote.
