Leinaar re-elected to MHSAA council

EAST LANSING — Bear Lake athletic director Karen Leinaar was re-elected to the Michigan High School Athletic Association’s Representative Council.

Leinaar will continue as one of two at-large statewide representatives.

Gobles athletic director Chris Miller will join the council to represent Class C and D schools in the southwestern section of the Lower Peninsula for a two-year team.

Kingsford's Al Unger will continue to represent Class A and B schools in the Upper Peninsula, Detroit Public School League administrator of athletics Alvin Ward will continue to represent the Detroit Public Schools, and Adrian Madison's Kristen Isom will continue to represent Class C and D schools in the southeastern section of the Lower Peninsula. Pewamo-Westphalia superintendent Jason Mellema was re-elected as one of two representatives of junior high and middle schools.

The Representative Council is the 19-member legislative body of the MHSAA. All but five members are elected by member schools. Four members are appointed by the council to represent females and minorities, and the 19th position is occupied by the Superintendent of Public Instruction or designee. The Council meets three times annually, and five members of the council convene monthly during the school year to form the MHSAA’s Executive Committee, which reviews appeals of Handbook regulations by member schools.
