In June 2013, Denise Gorski retired after 36 years of teaching physical education and adapted physical education at Boardman High School.
Her curtain call was to be one final season as head coach of the Spartans girls track and field team.
But retirement never kicked in. Boardman needed an interim athletic director and that became Gorski’s second act.
In December 2013, interim was removed from her title when Dave Smercansky retired.
Gorski credits the support of her husband, Dan, for taking on a new challenge that added to her 42-year legacy at Boardman.
“He said, ‘You should do it, you’ve always wanted to do it, you owe it to yourself to try,’” Gorski said. “Dan has been extremely supportive or I wouldn’t have been able to [become AD].
