TJ Powers to Teach/Coach at Arcanum

TJ Powers, current Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at Greenville, sent us the following statement regarding the announcement that he will be leaving Greenville to coach and teach at Arcanum High School next school year.

I will be leaving Greenville City Schools in June 2012 to become the Head Football Coach and HS Social Studies Teacher at Arcanum Butler High School. This was an extremely tough decision to look to leave my hometown school and alma mater.

I want what is best for the community of Greenville, Greenville Schools, and Greenville Athletics. I have coached football for Greenville for 11 years with the past 5 as Head Coach. Also, I have served as the Athletic Director the past 2 years. The support staff in the Athletic Department is top notch. During my time at Greenville I have had nothing but respect and admiration for the administration, especially the current administration. They have worked tirelessly to make Greenville Schools successful. I am very proud of the 2010-2011 Excellent rating for Greenville City Schools from the Ohio Department of Education. That rating is in direct correlation to hard working teachers and administrators as well as the students. I have truly enjoyed my time in Greenville. The hardest thing to deal with is leaving the players and the players’ families. There has been a bond built that I will forever cherish and I have made many lifelong friends. There are many times in your life when you have to make tough decisions and do what is best for your family and yourself.

I am excited about the opportunity and challenge at Arcanum as an educator and football coach. It is a great school district and community and I am thrilled to be a part of it.

TJ Powers
