Annette Scogin

Annette Scogin, a former Lady Reddie basketball player, has the unique distinction of being the first woman elected as president of the Arkansas High School Athletic Administrators Association.

Annette’s career in education has directed her into several leadership roles. Today, she works as an assistant principal at Springdale, Arkansas’ Hellstern Middle School. In the past, she has been a Certified Master Athletic Administrator and an athletic director/coordinator. She served as state president of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA), devoted four years to its Endowment Committee, and served as a state delegate to the Delegate Assembly.
Annette was honored with the NIAAA State Award of Merit in 2002 and the NFHS Citation in 2007. She was also recognized as the Arkansas District 7A Athletic Director of the Year and has received the Distinguished Service State Award of Merit.
In addition to Springdale schools, Annette has worked for The Cathedral School/Episcopal Collegiate School in Little Rock, Little Rock Public Schools, and Lyon College in Batesville. She has also taught at schools in Rockwall, Mt. Pleasant, and Linden-Kildare, Texas.
Annette earned her B.S.E. degree at Henderson and was a four-year starter for the Lady Reddies basketball team. She also played volleyball for a year. Annette continued her education at Harding University, earning a master’s degree in educational administration.


Chris considers professors Lynn Stanley, Woody Jolley, Patrick Wempe, and the late Dr. McAfee, his most influential instructors. “Each one taught me, in their own way, many of the leadership techniques and philosophies I put to use on daily basis.”
