Congratulations to Manteo High Athletic Director Alfie Wheeler, who received the Charlie Adams Distinguished Service Award in honor of the long-time NCHSAA executive director who retired from that post in January 2010. The award is presented annually to one individual in each region during the association’s annual Regional Meetings.
The award goes to an individual with at least 10 years of experience in education and athletics who is still active in the field and has regularly gone “above and beyond” the call of duty at both the local and the state level.
Wheeler is a native of Region 1 and has been a strong advocate and voice for colleagues and member schools in Region 1. A graduate of High Point University, where he played baseball, Wheeler now is the athletic director and baseball coach at his alma mater, Manteo. Wheeler is currently serving as a member of the NCHSAA Realignment Committee.
