Director of Athletics & Wellness Michelle Crowley New VP of PAISAA

Michelle Crowley, Director of Athletics and Wellness at Friends' Central, has been nominated by colleagues and affirmed by the PAISAA Board as Vice President of Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA) for 2021-2022. She will serve a two year term after which she will move into the position of President in 2023.

The Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association (PAISAA) was founded in 2007 to unite independent schools in the state of Pennsylvania in fostering healthy athletic rivalries, meaningful competition, and the values of sportsmanship.

The guiding principles of PAISAA are to: 

  • Support interscholastic athletics programs for independent schools across the state of Pennsylvania.
  • Organize and execute tournaments in each sport in which the members express an interest and there are sufficient teams to provide meaningful competition.
  • Provide professional development opportunities for athletic administrators and coaches.
  • Maintain affiliate membership with the National Federation of High Schools, thereby maintaining opportunities for member schools with other NFHS organizations.

Michelle said, "This is an incredible opportunity for me to represent not only Friends' Central School, but also the Friends Schools League in this leadership position. I look forward to advancing the Association in ways that amplify the voices of student-athletes and provide meaningful opportunities for growth for our coaches and programs. It will also be nice for Friends' Central to win a couple of PAISAA championships along the way!"
