Ripon High AD Rod Wright was honored by the Ripon Unified school board.

That was for his selection as the Sac-Joaquin Section Athletic Director of the Year Award for 2022-2023 by the California State Athletic Directors Association.

“Peers have recognized Rod for his commitment to your school and community,” said CSADA Awards Chairman Rick Francis in his Nov. 1 letter to RHS Principal Keith Rangel.

A teacher and former basketball coach at RHS, Wright received a plaque from the school board for the honor.

He’s scheduled to receive public recognition at the April 22 CSADA Conference Awards Banquet at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara.
