WENATCHEE - The former Dean of Students at Wenatchee High School has been named the new Assistant Director of The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.
The WIAA announced BJ Kuntz has been named the newest Assistant Director for the association, who will be replacing John Miller. Miller is retiring from the position after 11 years with the WIAA.
Kuntz has served in multiple roles in Wenatchee since 1996, gaining a substantial amount of experience. Kuntz was named the Dean of Students at Wenatchee High School in 2014 after 12 years of being the Athletic Director for the Wenatchee School District, from 2002 through 2014.
Kuntz began her career as a teacher and a coach for 10 years before deciding into an administrative role. Kuntz coached softball and volleyball at Rodgers High School in Puyallup, before moving to Wenatchee High School in 2002 where she continued to coach volleyball.
Kuntz is familiar with the WIAA in a number of capacities, serving as the WIAA District 6 Director since 2015, managing the operations and finances of District events.
"In the position, she also gained experience collaborating with District Directors from around the state and participated in the WIAA eligibility appeals process," the press release stated.
Kuntz earned a Bachelor of Arts in Health and Physical Education with teacher certification at Gonzaga University. She later earned a Masters of Education from City University.
“We are incredibly excited to have BJ join our team,” said incoming WIAA Executive Director Mick Hoffman. “With John Miller’s retirement and Brian Smith taking a position with the Kent School District, the WIAA will be fortunate to have BJ’s talents and experiences.”
