Q and A Brownsburg AD Kelli Waggoner


You’ve held the position for about three months now, what would be the biggest challenges so far?

Biggest challenges have probably just been organization. I think people don’t realize what goes into the whole athletic department. It’s a self-reliant segment of the Brownsburg Community Schools. They have their own budget. What they raise is what they spend. We’re fortunate enough to have really positive and supportive corporations and parents and boosters in the community so we’ve been really fortunate for that, but quite honestly, it’s the organization.

Brownsburg High School has a history of quality fundraising in the community. How do you plan to continue that?

My role is to get out and be a spokesperson for the athletic department and that means … we have a great product, we’ve got great student-athletes. If you look at our grade point averages with regards to where most of our teams are, we’ve got a great product, got a great product on the field, and on the floor. So it’s getting out and communicating with our local businesses. Like I said, IU Health, BillEstes.com, C.F. Roark have been our three real anchor sponsors but we also have several on the scoreboard that stepped up and helped pay for things like that and we can’t thank them enough. And my job is to get out and promote the product that we have here and that’s one, great student athletes, and two, good competition.

What’s your objective or your plan for your first year here at Brownsburg?

I have four of what I would call guiding principles in every decision that I make for that department. All of those, quite honestly, are to have better communication and more communication with our head coaches, the administration, Brownsburg Community Schools and athletes. Two, more and better communication, more and better organization. That’s from either, again, communicating or letting people know what’s going on. The third one would be, everything we do we need to do it consistently across the board. It doesn’t matter gender, it doesn’t matter what the sport is. All student-athletes deserve to have the same resources. It would be consistency and to do everything we do in the office as efficiently as possible. That really, over the next year, in every decision I make will try to apply those principles. If we’re not meeting that, I’m sure I will adjust to do that. That’s the goal. To look at all four of those things.
