President’s message - NMNMADA News – January, 2018
Michael Huston, President, NMADA
“Greetings from the President
Hello to everyone and here is hoping 2018 brings all of you and your students great success and joy this New Year.
Recently I have noticed many instances in professional and some college sports, where coaches and players alike have become more and more
argumentative and less shall we say, professional with decisions made by officials and referees in games and contests. I always hear about how
someone is “competitive” which is why they argue calls made or judgements ruled on by game officials, as if any argument would change any
call or ruling.
To me this is where our society is going, questioning authority and rules like they shouldn’t exist except when convenient for one team or
individual or the other. In the case of inconvenience, then rules should be changed to satisfy the complaint of one person or one team to make
it “right” in the complainer’s eyes. It comes down not to whether we agree or not with a ruling made, but whether we can change a call the
next time with our behavior or our actions. In many cases I am appalled. It is almost an accepted practice now by coaches and players alike.
As with all things we as Interscholastic Athletic Administrators can use these instances as teachable moments for not only our athletes but our
coaches and our parents in our athletic programs. Certainly I would hope that in your programs there are provisions for adults as well as
students who show the type of behaviors being displayed in the college and professional ranks, which penalizes such demonstrative actions to
referee’s calls. Besides incorporating the penalties, I would suggest some instruction on proper respect for officials and for the rules of each
game. Some understanding of the “human” error with regards to interpretation of events in a game as well as some discussion about how bad
it actually looks to argue a point with demonstrative actions would probably be well advised.
At the end of the day, penalties for players, coaches and parents need to be impactful enough to stop these actions completely in order for
them to be effective. As the Interscholastic Athletic Administrator it would be of great importance for your program, in my humble opinion, to
insure that your athletes and coaches learn that there are appropriate ways to respond to rule interpretations besides what is seen more and
more on the athletic field today. Let’s teach respect for rules and authority and playing fairly for success. Lessons that will be valuable in
later life.
Have a great second semester!

Advice: Honoring Local Law Enforcement Agencies & Campus Security
John Foreman, Head of School/AD, Mesilla Valley Christian School
Annually Mesilla Valley Christian School (Las Cruces) provides a season ticket to all on-campus
events (games, plays, programs) as a way to express their gratitude to school parents who serve
their community in law enforcement, fire department, EMT, etc.
MVCS has found that this is not only very well received among the law enforcement
community, but also an excellent way to enhance campus security/student safety by
encouraging parents with special skills to be on campus on a regular basis.
Hi
Dr. John Foreman (Head of School/AD) presents a season ticket to FBI Agent Steve Gohrick. MVCS school
parent and volunteer coach.
John Foreman is originally from Ohio and is in his 26
th
year of school administration. He worked
at Hilltop Christian School (Gallup area) for 5 years before moving to Mesilla Valley Christian
School in Las Cruces (16
th
year). He is Head of School and AD, as well as admissions director and
HR director. His wife Kathy teaches at MVCS and they have a two children, Caleb (age 22,
NMSU, former baseball player) and Kara (age 19, Wayland Baptist U., playing volleyball).
