Shaffner earns PSADA Distinguished Service award
Posted on 03/22/2018
Cumberland Valley Board of School Directors’ board member Bud Shaffner has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Service Award, as presented by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Directors Association. The award is presented to a person outside of athletic administration who has made special contributions to interscholastic athletics at the state, district, and local level.

“Bud is an integral part of Cumberland Valley athletics,” said Athletic Director Mike Craig. “He is and has always been a supporter, both as a school board member and as a fan; he’s the epitome of a CV Eagle.”

Shaffner’s ties to Cumberland Valley run deep. His children are graduates of CV High School, he is a founding member of the Eagle Foundation, he has served more than two decades on the Board of School Directors, he has served as a past president of the board, and he has served on nearly every committee of the board, including currently serving as chair of the Athletic, Booster, and Promotion/Sponsorship committees.

During his tenure, Shaffner and the Board of School Directors have strived to improve not only the school facilities but also our athletic facilities. While on the board, the district has completed major renovations to the high school, has opened a new elementary school, and is currently constructing an additional elementary and new middle school. The district also installed an outdoor artificial turf stadium and, most recently, opened new indoor turf and weight room facilities.

Shaffner is described as a champion of academics and athletics. He is spotted on the sidelines of many CV athletic games.

“Bud truly understands the educational value of high school athletics,” said Craig, “and he truly cares about the children in each of our schools throughout the district. We are honored and proud to have him as a lifelong supporter of Cumberland Valley athletics.”
