Barbara Twardus 
Administrator

Barbara Twardus served 25 years as an administrator, including 23 as an athletic director within the Seattle School District.  She was a member of the WIAA Executive Board for 10 years serving as president in 1986-87.  In addition she was a member of the WIAA Representative Assembly.  In 1985, she was president of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA).
 
She was a past president of the Washington Secondary School Athletic Administrators Association and served on numerous other WIAA committees.  A director for the Metro League for 14 years, she managed and organized tournaments for most sports.  
 
In 1976, Barbara was a member of the Title IX Compliance Steering Committee.  She has written many articles and given presentations on athletic safety, women’s athletics and the purpose of interscholastic programs. Considered by many to be a model of what an athletic director should be, Barbara was at the forefront of legal issues involving football helmet construction and equality for girls in sports.
 
Barbara has been inducted into the WSSAAA Hall of Fame and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Hall of Fame.  She has been awarded the NIAAA Award of Merit, the association’s highest honor, and also a NFHS Citation for athletic directors in 1978.
