Our speaker last week was Chris Peterson, Activities Director At Richfield High School. Chris is in his first year as AD, but he has been on the faculty since 2000. In his duties, he oversees over 25 sports and other activities such as Band, Cheerleaders, Theater. He is creating a “Community of Coaches” by meeting with them as a group and dining with all of them once a month over pizza. The challenge of coaching is to transform the lives of students and give them a positive learning experience. Their efforts have resulted in many student athletes being named to award status through the Fall sports season, with expectation to continue this success for the Winter/Spring sport seasons. Chris grew up in Burnsville and played high school hockey there. He is married and has three children.
