OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association announced that it will be moving in a new direction without its executive director.
On Wednesday, the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association announced that Ed Sheakley will no longer continue to serve as executive director.
Officials say Sheakley will continue to be employed by the association until Jan. 13, 2017 to help in the transition to an interim director.
Sheakley has been the executive director of the association since 2009 and has spent 24 years with the organization.
In addition to his salary and benefits, the board voted to make an additional payment of $50,000 to his retirement fund in recognition for his service to the association.
