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.
Many thanks to Chuck Debor. Has been a great example of class and leadership in our athletic department. https://t.co/IiFp9CxzuT

“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.”
My first opportunity as a HC was at Highlands, after Chuck Debor hired me in October 2016. I was only there for one year, but the most difficult part of my resignation was knowing I’d no longer be working with Chuck. Great AD, even better person. Thank you, Debo! 🐐 https://t.co/vbXRwnneQb
