Prosper ISD is proud of the opportunities, experiences, and excellence that district athletes receive through participation in Prosper ISD Athletics. None of these would be possible without a quality administrator at the helm.
In March of 2017, Prosper made an exemplary selection with the hire of District Athletic
Director (AD), Valerie Little. In February, the Texas High School Athletic Directors Association (THSADA) validated the quality of that hire by announcing that Coach Little has been named as the Region 3 Regional Athletic Administrator of the Year. THSADA is the professional and education association for more than 1,200 secondary athletic administrators encompassing more than 1,800 schools and eight regions across Texas.
Coach Little served as a basketball and track coach for nine years before moving to McKinney in 2006 to become an Assistant Campus Coordinator. She worked her way up the ranks becoming the Title IX Coordinator and Assistant AD in 2010 before being named the Associate Director of Athletics in 2011 where she served until coming to lead the Prosper program in 2017.
Since arriving in Prosper, Coach Little has been instrumental in the development and growth in multiple programs which helped the district earn the coveted UIL Lone Star Cup for the 2018-2019 school year. She oversees an athletic department that includes 12 campus coordinators, with the openings of Rushing Middle School and Rock Hill High School, many coaches, athletic trainers and support staff as well as coordinating activities at the district’s athletic facilities.
Coach Little said she is “very humbled to receive such an honor from my peers in Region 3. When I consider the caliber of all of the nominees, it is quite overwhelming! This award has nothing to do with me personally. It is a testament to the amazing student athletes, coaches, parents, and administrators who make this place as special as it is to garner this type of recognition. Thank you again to my peer Athletic Directors for this honor and thank you to Prosper ISD for this opportunity.”
