Highlands athletic director Chuck Debor resigns

Chuck Debor spent the past handful of years working part-time as Highlands’ athletic director, but he’ll soon go back to doing what he loves full-time.

The Highlands school board Monday accepted Debor’s resignation as athletic director and facilities scheduler, effective June 30. He spent the last five years in the position.

Debor, a physical education teacher in the district, said he stepped down so he could focus his attention on teaching. The move also gives the district the opportunity to hire a full-time athletic director. The position is currently part-time.

“Working in the athletic department was nice. I had a blast, don’t get me wrong,” Debor said. “But I’m only dealing with a certain type of person. I don’t get to see the entire student body. I really miss it because (teaching is) my first love. So this would give me an opportunity to go back into the classroom.”

Debor also worked as athletic director from 1992-95.

“It’d be a good opportunity to bring in a full-time athletic director in there,” he said. “With me being right across the hall, I can help them with any problems or any situations or any questions they would have.”
