Q and A Brownsburg AD Kelli Waggoner

Taking over for long-time Brownsburg Athletic Director Greg Hill, Kelli Waggoner comes to the Bulldogs in her first full season as AD this year. Hendricks County Flyer Sports Editor Jake Thompson recently sat down with Waggoner for a question and answer session.

You previously started your own consulting firm. What made you interested in the athletic director position here in Brownsburg?

I was a student-athlete here at Brownsburg so I’m an alum that had two boys that were fortunate enough to play athletics here. For the last six years I’ve been the varsity assistant for the girls’ basketball program, so I grew up here, played here, been around for a number of years and was ready to do something, a career change. This became available, so I applied and was lucky enough to be selected for the position.

Where do you feel your biggest contributions to Brownsburg athletics lie?

Probably on the area of running my own business. I understand budgets and meeting payrolls and those types of things from the very beginning. My philosophical view of the athletic department is you have the corporation and a subsidiary of the corporation, being the high school and the high school has then those areas under it where the athletic department is a subsidiary of the high school. Under me there are my divisions with my coaches. We have 20 IHSAA sanctioned sports at Brownsburg. It’s my job to manage all 20 of the divisions we have underneath the athletic department. It’s the background that I’ve had for the last 23 years of having my own business of how to do that. We’ve had increased costs in transportation and so how do we deal with that? We need to encourage multi-sport athletes. It really is communication skills, organizational skills that I’ve probably sharpened because of owning my own business and having that opportunity for the last 23 years.
