“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Rhonda for the past several years,” commented Kenny Henderson, LHSAA executive director. “She is very conscientious and a hard worker; it will be difficult to replace her. She will be missed.”
According to Dreibelbis, she plans to relocate to North Carolina to be with her husband who is an assistant commissioner with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. She plans to continue her career in athletic administration.
Dreibelbis commented, “I want to thank LHSAA Executive Director Kenneth Henderson and the members of the Executive Committee who approved my hire in 2007.” She further stated, “I will always be grateful to each of them for giving me the opportunity to work for the LHSAA; the experience and knowledge that I have gained will serve as the foundation for my future endeavors.”
