Re: EBAL Announces New Commissioner
The East Bay Athletic League's Board of Governors has announced that long-time EBAL Commissioner, Don Nelson, will be retiring from his position this June after providing decades of successful leadership to the league's member schools.
The Board of Governors also announced that Nelson will be succeeded by veteran school administrator Rob Stockberger. Stockberger, who retired as Superintendent of the John Swett Unified Schools last June, has extensive familiarity with the EBAL going back to his days as a coach and athletic director in the league from 1978-1989. Stockberger also served as a member of the EBAL Board of Governors while working as California High School Principal from 1995-1999 and supervised the high school athletic programs for the San Ramon Valley Unified Schools from 1999-2013.
Stockberger and Nelson will collaborate over the next three months to facilitate the transition of the position's duties and responsibilities.
