Briscoe Accepts Positon at Grace College

   In June, Mooresville High School will say goodbye to our Athletic Director of two years, Chad Briscoe.             

   Briscoe has accomplished many things as Athletic Director at MHS, including Mooresville’s Champions of Character program, a program that recognizes students from all Mooresville schools who display excellency in character, unity and servant leadership. He also oversaw the planning for the Mooresville Sports Complex, a complex that includes the Mooresville Junior League fields, the cross country course, all other Mooresville athletic fields, and the League of Miracles.

   “Chad served Mooresville Schools extraordinarily well by consistently living out positive, professional and productive behaviors and habits,” Superintendent Brad Lindsay said in a press release.

   There were also several firsts in Mooresville Athletics history while Briscoe was Athletic Director, including Mooresville’s first All Star in Cross Country, the first Regional qualifier in swimming and the first Sectional title in girls’ tennis.

   “[Briscoe] has done a wonderful job in the two years that he has been here,” Athletic Secretary Marsha Green said. “He has done so many positive things.”

   Briscoe also oversaw the building of the first school-owned softball field in MHS history. He has also secured a three-year sponsorship from St. Francis hospital for the athletic department and improving the school’s tennis courts, baseball field, weight rooms, track and football building, basketball gym, natatorium and soccer field.

   Briscoe has accepted a position as athletic director and professor of Sports Management at Grace College in Indiana.

   “There are many benefits for my family in returning to the college level,” Briscoe said. “I will serve as a professor on campus and I look forward to returning to teaching again.”

   Briscoe will be missed by the students and staff at MHS. Be sure to wish him luck at Grace College.

   “I have grown professionally from my experience at Mooresville and will miss working with the staff, students and coaches that make Mooresville a special place,” Briscoe said.
