Scott Clamme joins Blackford Jr.-Sr. High School as the new Athletic Director following his approval during last night's school board meeting. Clamme will be replacing Tony Uggen, who will be retiring at the end of the 2021-22 school year.
Clamme is a 1994 graduate of Blackford High School. Currently, he serves as a special education teacher at Jay County Jr-Sr High School. He received his Bachelor's degree in education from Purdue University and his Master’s degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Ball State University. He has taught Special Education since 2001 in the Mississinewa and Jay County school corporations.
Clamme has a diverse background in coaching in multiple sports. He has coached basketball, tennis and gymnastics, but his coaching experience also includes youth programs for basketball, baseball and soccer. In addition to coaching, Clamme volunteers in his community with All-Pro Dads, Jay County Fellowship of Christian Athletes and serves in his church.
The interview committees were impressed by Clamme’s responses to the future of BJSHS sports. He plans to move the BJSHS athletic program forward by building relationships with the youth programs and supporting our coaching staff to recruit more student athletes to participate.
Clamme and his wife, Shay, reside in Hartford City with their two children, Kaylin Grace, and Ryne Michael.
Please join us in welcoming him to the BCS family!
