Former LC hoopster earns NCHSAA honor
CHAPEL HILL --Coaches, administrators and media representatives will be among those receiving awards today when the North Carolina High School Athletic Association holds its 2013 Annual Meeting.

The event is scheduled for the Dean E. Smith Center on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill the day after the spring meeting of the NCHSAA’s Board of Directors has concluded.

The Association annually presents these statewide awards in several different categories, all based on those “who have done the most for high school athletics” rather than a single accomplishment or having an outstanding won-loss record.

The awards are named in memory or in honor of outstanding individuals in each category, five of whom are current members of the NCHSAA Hall of Fame.

The Dave Harris Athletic Director of the Year is Charles Simmons of Hertford County High School.

Simmons is a graduate of East Rutherford High School and attended Louisburg Junior College before graduating from UNC-Pembroke. 

He has been teaching and coaching in Hertford County since 1980 and has been the athletic director since 1990. As a men’s head basketball coach, he has earned over 500 victories and has been conference Coach of the Year 14 ties. 

He served a term on the NCHSAA Board of Directors from 2005-09 and has also served as president of both the North Carolina Athletic Directors Association and the North Carolina Coaches Association. Charles received an NCHSAA Award of Merit in 1995.

During his time at Louisburg College, Simmons played basketball under the legendary J. Enid Drake.

He is a member of the LC Class of 1975.
