Students and coaches know that Buncombe County Schools is a fantastic place to be an athlete. Across the many playing fields, our schools consistently lead in their conferences and across the state. Now, BCS Superintendent Dr. Tony Baldwin has been chosen as the North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s (NCHSAA) 2017-2018 Bob McRae Superintendent of the Year!

According to the NCHSAA announcement, Dr. Baldwin has “served with distinction” and in his role as Superintendent has “done the most for high school athletics.” Baldwin received his award on Thursday, May 3, at Chapel Hill’s Dean E. Smith Center.

Baldwin was recognized for his years of service to NCHSAA, his early implementation of a professional development and certification program for BCS coaches, his continued support for athletic facility improvements, and his leadership on the NCHSAA board, said BCS Athletic Specialist David Ball.

“Dr. Baldwin has established a great legacy across the region and across the state,” Ball said.
