    "Officiating cum laude
    Spotlight on NFHS Hall of Fame Inductee Bill Laude

    by Ken Devoe

    The phrase “cum laude” means “with high honor and distinction” – as in graduating college cum laude. How fitting, then, that a high school sports official named Bill Laude should receive the NFHS’ highest honor and distinction – induction into the National High School Hall of Fame.

    Laude was inducted into the Hall of Fame on July 3, along with 11 other individuals as part of the NFHS Summer Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island.

    Chicago native Laude did not receive this honor because of his name – apt as it may be – but because of his exceptional accomplishments as a multi-sport official for over half a century and his positive impact on countless young people as both a sports official and an educator.

    Setting up a mentorship program is as easy as 1-2-3

    By Ivan Cardona

    If your officials’ association is interested in developing a formal mentoring program, but the state association doesn’t offer guidance, it isn’t time to panic. Instead, try following these steps in the creation of a mentorship for your association to utilize for seasons to come.

    In creating a mentorship program, I did so with three things in mind: Setting the Stage, Process and Resources.

    ·         Setting the Stage – Create a mission, objectives and roles for both mentor and mentee.

    ·         Process – Setting guidelines, establishing framework and mapping out the steps.

    ·         Resources – Identifying tools to achieve your mentorship goals. (There is no need to reinvent the wheel!)

    This creation and implementation begins with someone that is willing to step up, someone that recognizes, either individually or as a board of directors that there is a need for a mentorship program, especially if the state association does not offer one. Most importantly, the program is going to rely on strong mentors. They are the foundation of any kind of success you hope for your mentorship program.
