The North Carolina High School Athletic Association officially began the celebration of its 100th anniversary with a special kickoff celebration on Saturday.

The event was held at The Friday Center in Chapel Hill, and visitors came from all across the state.

Several speakers were part of the program. Two of the state’s outstanding coaches, Michael Gainey at Rocky Mount and former West Henderson coach Jan Stanley, now in the NCHSAA Hall of Fame, talked about their experiences in coaching and the value they had derived from working with the NCHSAA.
