As a Cavalier, Norma Shaar was a true pioneer. Shaar came to Chillicothe in 1963 and was instrumental in founding many of the Girls Athletic programs still played today. Shaar introduced and coached basketball, softball and tennis at CHS and led her tennis teams to 76 consecutive victories. She also served as Assistant Athletic Director in the 1980s. Shaar retired from CHS in 1993 and returned to her native Charleston, West Viriginia where she has continued her teaching career, which has spanned 59 years. She was competitive in Senior Athletics up until three years ago.
