Nancy Weishaar of Valley Falls to Retire After 48 Years with the KSHSAA

TOPEKA, Kan - On September 30, Nancy Weishaar will retire from the Kansas State High School Activities Association after 48 years of faithful service to officials and member schools.

Football rules books were 60 cents and there were 655 high schools when Weishaar began her career at the KSHSAA on September 8, 1972. When she started her primary duty was to record and file “Form Cs,” which translated into each school submitting a form for students eligible to compete in activities.

“The stack came up to my head and there were about 10 stacks,” Weishaar recalls. The tasks and assignments surely changed during her time but what most will know her for is the Registrar of Officials. At the peak of her 48 years registering officials, the KSHSAA was seeing over 2,500 registrations come in by hand each year. Nancy spent countless hours organizing postseason eligibility for officials. Without question if you asked her to go find a registration or piece of history on an official from 1989 she could point to where it sits and any year before or after.

Hired by then KSHSAA Executive Director Brice Durbin, Weishaar had just graduated from Valley Falls High School, an area where she still resides today. During her time, Nancy worked with five executive directors: Brice Durbin, Nelson Hartman, Kaye Pearce, Gary Musselman and now Bill Faflick.

“Nancy has been a valuable member of our team and a humble servant for all of the member schools and the registered officials across our great state,” said Bill Faflick, KSHSAA Executive Director. “Her contributions have made each of the stakeholders in our Association better, and her historical perspective of the KSHSAA will be impossible to replace.” 

In 2018, Weishaar was awarded the NFHS State Award for Outstanding Service. The award recognizes individuals who have provided service and contributions in support of the KSHSAA.

“Nancy Weishaar is one of the most dedicated and loyal people I have known in my career,” said former KSHSAA Executive Director, Gary Musselman. “Her work ethic and integrity are beyond compare. For the 48 years she worked for the KSHSAA assisting five Executive Directors, Nancy served Kansas students, educators, schools and officials with a positive, cheerful attitude and was a great ambassador. She is a wonderful example to all who know her and to those of us who were privileged to work with her.”
