High schools mourn passing of CSSSA Executive member, Mr. Arthur Butler

The National Secondary Sports Association (NSSSA) and its affiliate regions – NSTA (North), CSSSA (Central), WSSSA (West), and SSSSA (South), mourn the passing of one of the long standing members of the NSSSA and CSSSA Executive, Mr. Arthur Butler.

Mr. Butler passed away on Sunday, November 17, at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Mr. Butler has been a member of the CSSSA Executive for the past eight (8) years, and the NSSSA Executive for the past six (6) years, but has been involved in sports from his high school years.

At the time of his death, Mr. Butler was the sports coordinator at Edward P. Yorke High School (EPYHS), the treasurer of CSSSA, and the assistant secretary of NSSSA. He was the tournament director for the NSSSA volleyball championship that was held last week Friday and Saturday, November 8-9, at St. John’s College.

The sports family of NSSSA will surely miss Mr. Butler, and I’m sure others will too. The BAPSS (Belize Association of Principals of Secondary Schools) and NSSSA extend condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Arthur Butler. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Deon Sutherland
CSSSA

(Ed. Note: Our condolences also from the sports desk.)
