Remembering Kevin Conard: Stone Athletic Director passes away
The City of Wiggins is in mourning after the passing of Stone Athletic Director Kevin Conard.
He’s worked as a coach and a school administrator prior to becoming an athletic director. Kevin will be remembered as a positive person who made a huge impact on the Stone County School District and the community.
Former Stone County AD Greg Amacker knew Conard for 20 years and tells News 25 his work ethic and passion for his players is something that will be missed. “He was very, very passionate about doing it right. And his passion rubbed off on his players. There’s several players who played for him today that will tell you right now how much they meant to him and what he instilled in them, they’ll carry with them the rest of their lives.”
The school released a statement as they canceled the third-round playoff baseball game scheduled for today in light of what happened. Conard’s son is a pitcher for the Tomcats and was slated to take the mound this weekend.
