By Julie Thomas, Ballard County Schools
BALLARD COUNTY - Ballard Memorial High School teacher and coach Tim Adams has been named district athletic director at Ballard County Schools.

Coaching has been part of his life since college, Adams said. “It’s been a passion in my life, what athletics does for young people, what it teaches them.  I look forward  to collaborating with all school, district, and community stakeholders to craft an overarching vision for athletics in  Ballard County Schools, from elementary to high school levels."

Dr. Casey Allen, Ballard superintendent, said, “We are pleased to welcome Coach Adams to our administrative team as district athletic director. He has years of successful administrative experience under his belt. His duties still will include teaching math at Ballard Memorial High School and serving as head coach of our Lady Bomber basketball team. We know he will be busy, but we are excited to have someone of his experience working with some of our most visible district-wide programs.”

Adams has been a high-school math teacher and head coach of the Lady Bomber basketball team for the last four years. Prior to that, he was head girls’ coach at Lone Oak High School for five years, and has coached boys and girls at the varsity, JV and freshman levels.

He said he plans to continue using the Twitter account @BallardBombers, and will be looking for other ways to promote the district’s athletic programs, its athletes, and their accomplishments through different media platforms.

Adams holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Murray State University, and was a teacher or administrator in McCracken County for 21 years before coming to Ballard. He and his wife, Ballard Middle School teacher Holly Adams, live in West Paducah with one son and two daughters.
