WILLIAMSPORT — The end of the 2011-12 school year meant a change of address  —  and responsibilities  —  for Todd Ullery.

An assistant principal at North High the past two years, Ullery has been named to succeed Stan Stouffer as the athletic director at Williamsport High School.

“I’m looking forward to the position,” said Ullery. “Williamsport is a great community with a tradition for athletics.”

Ullery, 48, is a graduate of Old Mill High School in Anne Arundel County and then received a bachelor’s degree in kiniesiology from Towson University and a master’s degree from McDaniel College.

His first step into education was a seven-year stint as a teacher at Urbana High School, where he also spent time as boys lacrosse coach. He then moved to Smithsburg for a five-year stop as assistant principal.

Ullery said he always has had an interest in athletics and completed his Certified Athletic Administrator requirements two years ago.


“I’m passionate about athletics and love working with kids,” said Ullery. “I know many of the coaches and want to meet with them and see what they need. I want to meet the parents and find out their needs.”

For the remainder of June, Ullery will be transitioning into his new role by shadowing Stouffer in the athletic department.

“I’m sure it will be a smooth transition,” Ullery said. “For the past seven years, I’d pick up the handbook and look at disciplines and policies and now I’ll be doing that athletic specific.”

Ullery said North AD Marcia Nissel has been mentoring him in case this opportunity came about, working on scenarios for the past year.

His first day in his new position was Monday at the regular Washington County Public Schools athletic directors meeting.
