CHHS grad is new Heights High supervisor of athletics
Dwight Hollins is the new Heights High supervisor of athletics. Hollins takes over the position following the departure of Kristin Hughes, former athletic director, who accepted the position of director of athletics for Smith College in Northampton, Mass. Dwight will help facilitate the transition of athletic programs in the midst of the Heights High construction over the next two years.
"I know the district well and am eager to get started. With the demolition and construction of the high school just starting to take place, I see this transition as a huge opportunity," stated Hollins.
Hollins, a CHHS graduate himself, has extensive experience in athletics. He previously worked as assistant director of athletics at John Carroll University before becoming director of athletics at St. Peter Chanel High School. Since 2004, Hollins has also served as founder and president of True Believer Inc., providing clients throughout Greater Cleveland strategic consultation in order to improve educational opportunities for athletes. He completed his associate degree at Hilbert College, his B.A. at Xavier University, and obtained a Master in Education from Cleveland State University.
“As a former Tiger, Mr. Hollins brings with him both impressive experience and a uniquely personal understanding of our district,” stated Superintendent Talisa L. Dixon, “Both of these qualities will be instrumental in successfully guiding Heights High into a new era.”
