Distinguished Service Award

Spring Branch ISD Executive Director of Athletics Paige Hershey was one of four area sports leaders inducted May 1 into the Greater Houston Football Coaches Association’s 2013 John Kelly Distinguished Service Awards hall of fame. She is the first area woman to receive this group’s highest service honor.

Paige Hershey received the distinguished service award at the association’s Awards Night, which was held at the University of Houston. Joining her there as service award recipients were Mike Atkinson, a Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO) referee, Rice University head coach David Bailiff, and TASO referee Keith Kimmel.

A 1984 graduate of Rice University, Paige Hershey’s entire professional career has been devoted to SBISD athletics. She was named district athletics director in 2001, and she was elevated to the executive director position in May 2010.

In December 2009, Paige was one of seven recipients to be awarded the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) Distinguished Service Award at the national level.
