CTA Girls Baskteball Sponsors Euchre Tournament to Help Our Own

CTA-Euchre

On January 31st a house fire totally destroyed the home of a CTA family.  The family lost their home and almost all of the family’s possessions.  In keeping with our “CTA Family Values” we wanted to come together to help this family in their time of need.  The girls’ basketball team rallied together right away to help their teammates get new shoes and new gear.  PE teacher and varsity women’s basketball coach, Ryan Krombeen, organized a euchre tournament to help raise money for the family.  The euchre tournament was held on Saturday February 8th at the TGIF on Alpine Avenue.  Twenty people competed in the euchre tournament.  The students and staff that participated in the euchre tournament were Hunter George, Dani George, Analiese VanEnk, James Hoftstra, Mrs. Terpstra, Mrs. Honeysett, Mrs. and Mr. Krombeen and Mr. George.  James Hoftstra was partnered with his father and they made it all the way through the bracket to the finals.  They ended up losing in the finals but they put up a good battle. “I was really happy with the turn out and the excitement shown by the participants.  It was great to see CTA families coming together to help support one of their own,” Mr. Krombeen commented.

Autumn Mattson named Regional Athletic Director of the Year

Autumn Mattson

Autumn Mattson

Michigan’s professional organization of school athletic directors, the Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (MIAAA), has selected Autumn Mattson of Cedar Springs High School as regional Athletic Director of the Year.  One of only fourteen administrators state wide to be honored by the MIAAA, Autumn will be presented the award in Traverse City on March 18, 2014 at the annual MIAAA Mid-Winter Conference in which over 500 athletic directors participate.

Mattson came to Cedar Springs High school from Lake Superior State University where she played four years of women’s basketball and received her undergraduate degree.  She then received her Masters in Education and her teaching certificate from Aquinas College. Currently at Cedar Springs, Autumn serves as Athletic Director and Dean of Students. Mattson also served as president of the OK Bronze division in 2011 & 2012 and is involved in numerous MHSAA committees including: Women in Sports Leadership, Basketball Officials, and the Scholar Athlete committee.

In 2010, Mattson founded the Athletic Leadership Council (ALC) in Cedar Springs with the goal of uniting the students, staff and community and to spread the Red Hawk Pride to the community. One example is Staff Pride night when each athlete chooses a staff member within the district who has made a difference in their lives and invites them to attend a game. This allows past teachers to see that they are remembered and appreciated.

Brian Zdanowski, Athletic Director at Greenville High School, says Autumn is “very professional, dependable, and one who will do what it takes to get the job done. She is most definitely the leader of the athletic department and has gained respect from the coaches, athletes, and the parents that she serves.”

Steve Bennink, Athletic Director at Coopersville Area Schools, says “she has been the ultimate professional, always representing what is best for all student athletes, whether hers or the other schools.”

The MIAAA is a 52-year old association with nearly 700 members serving as athletic administrators in numerous high schools and junior high/middle schools in Michigan.  As partners with the Michigan High School Athletic Association, the MIAAA works to promote the educational value of interscholastic athletics and the role and profession of athletic director.  The MIAAA is very proud to spotlight the work of Autumn Mattson, an Athletic Director whose work and values best mirrors those of the association.
