Hill named athletic director at John Handley

Todd Hill, a former North Hagerstown High School student-athlete, has been named the athletic director at John Handley High School in Winchester, Va.

His first official day was July 1.

"It's a challenge but I'm looking forward to it," the 40-year-old Hill said.

The Washington County native has been a classroom teacher at the Virginia school since 1987 and also served the role of assistant athletic director for the past two years.

He filled the position of acting AD last December when Ron Lindon was battling a serious illness.

"Mr. Lindon was diagnosed with cancer last fall and died in early April this year," Hill said. "He was a great guy, certainly will be tough to replace. I stepped in as acting AD in December when he became ill and learned a lot from him. I was then selected for the position this spring after some other applicants were interviewed."

Following graduation from North and Bridgewater College, Hill received a master's degree in athletic administration from James Madison University in 1987.
