Curt Olson, Creston High School assistant principal and activities director for 22 years before retiring in 2004, was selected in July as a 2012 inductee into Creston Community Schools Hall of Fame as a distinguished faculty member.
Olson died Sept. 19. Under the circumstances, the family requested that full induction ceremonies be conducted in 2013.
During his tenure, Olson was a past president of Iowa High School Athletic Directors Association and was once a finalist for the National Athletic Director of the Year Award while serving as Iowa's State Athletic Director of the Year.
He was also recognized for his work in helping students stay in school, and find assistance they needed. He was also a coach of several sports in the Creston district, and was still serving as a volunteer coach for the eighth-grade football team at the time of his death.
