Manahan Named Alumni Director
Bishop Watterson has announced that Scott Manahan will step into the position of Alumni Director effective July 1. Manahan, currently a physical education teacher, the head boys baseball coach, and Assistant Athletic Director, will continue to teach and coach while serving as Alumni Director.
Manahan, who has spent 17 years at Bishop Watterson (1991-07, 2010-) has worn numerous hats over the years. In addition to his current roles, he has served as Dean of Men, Co-Athletic Director, assistant football coach and launched the BWHS Athletic Hall of Fame this year. A graduate of Fremont Ross High School ’81 and Ashland College ’85, Manahan won a baseball state championship in 1997.
“I am extremely excited and honored to become the new Alumni Director at Bishop Watterson High School,” Manahan said. “Over my numerous years here at Watterson I have been blessed to teach, coach and make friends with some wonderful young men and women. It has also been my pleasure to meet and become friends with a large number of Watterson Alumni who I now hope to bring back to the school for events.”
Manahan does not plan to drastically change anything about the way the Alumni Director operates.
“When we were at the state championship game for the basketball team this spring and all the kids were chanting ‘Eagle Nation!’ I got chills,” Manahan said. “That’s what it’s all about. I want to keep the Eagle Nation theme going.”
Scott Manahan said the appeal to become the Alumni Director was very strong.
“When I was Co-Athletic Director, there was a lot of set-up and tear down. I used to be too busy to enjoy people. Now I can spend more time with people, and there will hopefully be nothing but positive moments.”
As Alumni Director, Manahan will also be involved with the Bishop Watterson Hall of Fame. Manahan’s daughter Emily is a 2008 graduate, son Matt graduated from Hamilton Township in 2009, Audrey will be a 2013 graduate and Katie is a member of the BWHS class of 2015.
Former Alumni Director Jenifer Bernard-Rasor ’81 has moved into the position of Director of Scholarships and Grants.
