PROVIDENCE, R.I. — CHSAA's Board of Directors and administrative staff all arrived here this week to take part in the NFHS Summer Meeting, the 98th annual gathering.

Each will take part in meetings, roundtables, luncheons and networking events over the course of the next few days, and some of them will be featured speakers or presenters.

A local highlight will come on Saturday when associate commissioner Tom Robinson and legendary Denver Christian basketball coach Dick Katte each are awarded NFHS Citations.

This trip also marks the official end of a career for CHSAA commissioner Paul Angelico, who retires on June 30. Rhonda Blanford-Green, CHSAA's new commissioner, will begin her role on July 1. Both are on the trip.

It also is the first official duties for newly-hired assistant commissioner Ernie Derrera.

In addition, July 1 marks the transition in Board presidents from Eddie Hartnett to Jim Lucas.

The conference concludes on Sunday evening with the induction of the new members to the National High School Hall of Fame.
