NJSIAA Makes It Official By Appointing First Female Executive Director
Colleen Maguire has been the Chief Operating Officer of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Association since June of 2020 when then Executive Director Larry White announced his planned retirement. The Moorestown resident has run the day-to-day operation of what is the governing body of high school sports in the state since and today was elevated to Executive Director which makes her the first woman to hold this position in the 103-year history of the NJSIAA.
Maguire, whose leadership responsibilities will not change, gets a five-year contract that will run through June 2026. Steve Shohfi, association president said "Given the pandemic, the past year or so has likely been the most difficult and tumultuous in the long history of the NJSIAA. Colleen's steady, thoughtful leadership during almost all that time is in large part responsible for New Jersey's scholastic athletes having continued opportunities to compete. I'm confident she'll make an outstanding executive director."
Maguire joined the organization in 2014 and before being named COO served as the director of finance and administration. She is a former standout player and captain at George Washington University where she graduated summa cum laude with an accounting degree and in 2008 was inducted into the school's athletic hall of fame.
