The National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) recently announced that Michael L. Daly, Athletic Director/Co-Curricular Director at Deering High School, has been recognized by the NIAAA as a Certified Athletic Administrator (CAA).

Daly is one of an elite group of interscholastic athletic administrators nationwide to attain this level of professionalism.

To earn this distinction, Daly has demonstrated the highest level of knowledge and expertise in the field of interscholastic athletic administration. The voluntary certification process included a thorough evaluation of the candidate's educational background, experience and professional contributions, as well as a rigorous, comprehensive written examination.

He also has served as assistant athletic director at Merrimack College and at Stonehill College, and coached women’s lacrosse at Merrimack, Stonehill and the University of New Hampshire.

The NIAAA is a national professional organization consisting of all 50 state athletic administrator associations and more than 12,000 individual members.  It is dedicated to promoting the professional growth of interscholastic athletic administrators and preserving the educational nature of interscholastic athletics and the place of these programs in the secondary school curriculum.
