Former Sumner administrator, John Anderson, was inducted to the Sumner School District Stadium Wall of Fame prior to Sumner High School’s Homecoming football game. John is being recognized for his 35 years of dedication to the Sumner School District as a coach, teacher, and administrator. He was head football coach for the Spartans for 16 years, earning five league championships and two WIAA State Championships. John was named State Football Coach of the Year in 1977 and is a member of the State Football Coaches Hall of Fame. He also served as Sumner High School/School District Athletic Director for 16 years and was named the State Athletic Director of the Year in 1988.

John was a member of the WIAA Executive Board from 1987-1995, serving as president during the 1992-93 school year. Prior to his membership on the WIAA Executive Board, he served as a member of the Representative Assembly for the West Central District.

Fellow WIAA Executive Board Member, Kim Wilson, said, “John was a solid board member, one who was never flustered, but practical and thoughtful. He made great decisions on behalf of all students.”

John is pictured here with Cindy Adsit, WIAA Assistant Executive Director, just after he received a special Sumner Spartan football jersey.

Sumner's Wall of Fame is displayed at the entrance of the district stadium and is dedicated to football, soccer, and track & field. It honors teams that achieve league championships and state championships, as well as individual state champions in track & field and individual All-State selections in football and soccer.
