Thank You On behalf the athletic administrators of NIAAA Section 1, I want to thank and recognize the service of Gary Stevens, CMAA of Thornton Academy, in Saco, Maine, who recently completed his term of service on the NIAAA Board of Directors. Gary performed his responsibilities in his time on the Board with true professionalism and has been an accomplished leader at the national level. Under Gary's leadership our Section 1meeting has transitioned to being paperless and he has been on the forefront of this movement and the use of the NIAAA portal nationally.
