Rosberg hired as new athletic direction, bringing years of experience

On May 15 the school board approved the hiring of Scott Rosberg as the new athletic director at Park High. He has been an athletic director at many different schools over the last 12 years. He spent eight years as a highschool and middle school athletic director in Granger, Washington. Rosberg then spent three years at Park High and one year at Sleeping Giant Middle School here in Livingston.
Not only has he been an athletic director but he has also been a coach for 40 plus years. He has been the coach of Park High’s boys basketball team three times during his time here in Livingston. As the athletic director he hopes to continue coaching the boys basketball team in the future.Rosberg said that “ I believe approximately 75% of the ADs at schools around the country also coach, so I don’t see why we can’t have it that way here.” To be able to do this, the school board would have to approve of him coaching the basketball team at a board meeting.
Rosberg has also been an English teacher for 20 years, six of which were spent teaching English at Park High.
In an interview done via email, Rosberg said that as the new athletic director, he hopes to build on what current AD Nate Parseghian has done during his time here at Park High. Parseghian has brought back a lot of school spirit for our school, Rosberg said. Not only does he want to build onto things he also wants to help coaches build their programs to be successful and impactful on the students. He would like to help the coaches grow and improve so they can better their programs and make the most differences in students’ lives. He would also like to build up more community support for our sports and activities programs.
In the future, Rosberg is hoping to make “the AD position first and foremost as a “Coach of Coaches/Advisors,” and I want to help the leaders of the various activities programs grow and improve themselves and their programs to become the best they’re capable of becoming,” he wrote.
