Seng Elected Recording Secretary for MIAAA
On March 21, Greenhills athletic director Meg Seng was elected recording secretary of the Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (MIAAA).
Said the MIAAA about Seng in its press release: “In the eight short years of her involvement (since 2003), she has earned the respect of athletic directors across Michigan. She has been a visionary leader serving as co-chair of both the Exemplary Athletic Program and Educational Athletics committees. Currently Seng serves on the Strategic Planning, Professional Development, and Public Relations committees.
This past year Seng has been instrumental in developing a Leadership Academy for neophyte athletic directors. She was also the catalyst behind the formation of another important organization–the Academy for Sport Leadership. She is the current president of the academy whose mission is to promote women in coaching and sports leadership. Under Seng’s direction, the academy offers a dynamic combination of action learning programs, internships, and mentoring of women as athletic educators.
As the executive board’s recording secretary, Seng is in line to assume the presidency of the MIAAA in 2014. She firmly believes that in these tenuous fiscal times, athletic directors ‘will need help weathering the financial storm.’ Her expertise in athletic administration, her understanding of financing necessary to sustain athletic programs and her desire to continue to pave the path for women in the administration of school athletics assure the MIAAA of a strong, committed, passionate voice–and a confidant to athletic directors across Michigan.”
Following her own multisport high school and collegiate athletic career (Indiana University), Seng began coaching high school athletes in 1985 when she took the helm of the Ann Arbor Huron volleyball team. She later coached volleyball at Greenhills as well as softball at Huron High. In 1990 Seng was hired to teach health and physical education at Greenhills. She was in the classroom for 13 years and served as P.E .and Wellness department chair prior to becoming the Gryphon AD in 2003.
