AP: Guillebeau to retire as GHSA Executive Director

October 03, 2000

AP: The executive director of the Georgia High School Association -- Tommy Guillebeau -- says he'll retire at the end of the school year. The association governs Georgia's high school extracurricular activities. Guillebeau has been executive director since 1992. He says he's stepping down because he's getting too old -- at age 69 -- to run the organization any longer. He was the third executive director in the 55-year history of the association. Ralph Swearngin, the GHSA's deputy executive director and commissioner of officials, is most likely to succeed Guillebeau. Guillebeau [a Lincolnton native] was a Korean War veteran and a high school coach in Georgia for thirteen years in the 1950s and '60s.
