Master of Athletic Administration
The Dream Athletic Director
How an AD Went Back to School After 20 Years
Anthony Amero is every school district’s dream athletic director.
His 23 years at Forest Hills demonstrate he is devoted to his school.
His back-to-back state titles show his work ethic is unrelenting.
His 2018 NFHS NIAAA citation proves he is committed to excellence.
And his 2019 “Sectional Best Coach of the Year” proves that his success is not just luck.
Anthony Amero is every school district’s dream athletic director — and his success seemed to pivot on a decision he made five years ago to go back to school.
“This program opened up a lot of doors for me. It helped me to become an LTC instructor in my state and work with younger athletic directors in my state. The degree has put me in position for my next phase of life. The MMA was beneficial in many ways. As an athletic director, it helped me improve the school, and as a coach, it helped me improve the basketball program. It went from being about me and my coursework to benefitting a group of kids. It wasn’t just geared toward my needs, but also the needs of the school. They really nailed the curriculum on the head. I tell every athletic director looking for a Master's in Athletic Administration, 'Don't shop around. Go right to Grace.'”Anthony Amero, Athletic Director at Forest Hills Consolidated Schools in Jackman, Maine.
