LEAGUE CITY — The Clear Creek ISD board of trustees took a moment during its regular meeting Monday to recognize athletic director Bill Daws, who was inducted into the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association Hall of Honor during the state conference and banquet earlier this summer.
The association chooses members to be honored in recognition of long and meritorious service to athletics and athletic administration in the State of Texas.
“What an honor to be selected for recognition for the entire State of Texas,” Daws said. “It is humbling to be inducted into the Hall of Honor. Texas leads the way in high school athletics, and there are some great people in this state who lead our athletic programs.”
Daws was also chosen as the PBK Sports Athletic Director of the Year, an honor is traditionally given to the association’s president at the end of his term of service. Daws has served as athletic director for CCISD since 2003.
“Bill Daws has been involved in athletics his entire life,” said Scott Bockart, the school district’s assistant superintendent of secondary education. “As a four-sport letterman in high school as well as a former high school football, track and baseball coach, Bill Daws has the hands-on experience to lead our secondary athletics programs. He’s done a tremendous job as the District has grown to five comprehensive high schools and ten intermediate schools. We are proud of his accomplishments and believe he is very deserving of the honors bestowed upon him by the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association.”
Daws is a graduate of Texas A&M University, where he majored in agriculture and biology. He received his master’s degree in 1990 from the University of Houston at Clear Lake. The 2014-15 school year marks Daws’ 40th year in public education including 26 years in athletics and 13 years with campus administration.
