The National Federation of State High School Associations announced on Wednesday that Nash Central High School has earned Level 1 status in the NFHS honor roll.
According to the NFHS website, the program is designed to promote professional development for high school coaches by having them complete online education courses.
In order for the school to earn such a distinction — one of three — 90 percent of Bulldogs coaches had to complete the core course “Fundamentals of Coaching,” as well three more courses that deal with concussions, cardiac arrest and dealing with student abuse protection.
Schools can earn Level 2 status when 90 percent of coaches complete courses dealing specifically to sports they coach. Level 3 banner is awarded when coaches complete more classes.
“Earning the NFHS School Honor Roll banner is a symbol that the school and its coaches are committed to providing a great experience for young people, and it’s something that everyone can be proud of within their communities,” NFHS director of education services Dan Schuster said in a press release.
