Monday, April 25, 2022
Pittsburgh, Pa. – The Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) Board of Directors have named Scott Seltzer as the league’s next Executive Director. The move will take effect on Friday, July 1, 2022.
“The job that Amy Scheuneman did, getting us through the (COVID-19 pandemic) and through the past couple years was outstanding,” said Seltzer. “There’s no way that I will be able to compare to what she has done for this district and for this league – she will be greatly missed. It’s an honor and a privilege to be chosen as the next Executive Director. This is something I thought about for a long time, and to have this opportunity is humbling. I’m not going to be able to replace Amy, but I will do my best to represent the league.”
Seltzer has held the position of President of the WPIAL Board of Directors for six years, also serving on the PIAA Board of Directors during that same time. He is a 13-year elected member of the WPIAL Board of Directors, and currently is in his 12th year as the Assistant Superintendent for School Leadership at Chartiers Valley School District. Seltzer served as the Acting Superintendent at Chartiers Valley in 2017-18.
Before being hired at Chartiers Valley, Seltzer held roles at Moon Area School District as a high school co-principal (2007-10) and assistant principal (2003-05), was the high school principal at Neshannock School District (2005-07), and worked as the assistant principal at Frew Mill School (2002-03). He was also a social studies teacher at Mohawk School District (1989-02), and has a 16-year coaching resume that includes helping lead football, basketball, and baseball teams at Mohawk and Neshannock, and a two-year stint as the offensive line coach for Westminster College from 2001-03.
A graduate of Westminster College, Seltzer earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in history in 1989 and a Master’s degree in guidance in 1996. He later received his Principal’s Certification in 2002 and Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility in 2007.
“Scott’s knowledge of the league through his position of Board of Directors president as well as various positions within the league have prepared him to be the Executive Director,” said current Executive Director Amy Scheuneman. “Scott’s continual focus on the student-athletes will be beneficial to support the mission of the WPIAL. His visions of structural committees and growth of current initiatives such as the Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Council and Student Leadership Initiative will aid in further advancement of the league.”
