Logansport athletic director Greg Fisher’s retirement request was approved by the Logansport Community School Corporation school board Monday.
Fisher, 61, has been the AD at Logansport the last 15 years. His retirement will go into effect when his contract expires in June, he said.
“The decision to retire is not an easy one for anyone that gets to that point,” he said. “I’ve spent my entire life in athletics. I think it’s now time to move on and look at other areas. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve done in athletics as a player, coach and administrator. I’m looking forward to doing other things.
“I’m planning on being able to spend more time with my grandkids and being able to visit my son in San Diego, things that have just been difficult to do in the past.”
Logansport principal Matt Jones said Fisher will be missed.
“We appreciate all of Mr. Fisher’s hard work and dedication to Berry athletics. His commitment and pride in our program has spanned generations. He was a Berry himself,” he said. “Mr. Fisher has a real passion for Logansport High School and the North Central Conference. He’s been an integral part of the NCC. His knowledge and expertise will be missed. The rich LHS tradition in athletic success has thrived during his tenure. Mr. Fisher has spent countless hours dedicating his life to the Berries. For that we thank him.”
Prior to coming back home to Logansport to be the AD, Fisher was the head boys basketball coach at Portage for 12 years. Before his stint at Portage he was the head basketball coach at Twin Lakes for five years. He also had stints as an a basketball assistant at Lafayette Jeff and Delphi, where he was also the baseball coach for one year.
