At its March meeting, the Milford Board of Education approved Mr. Aaron Zupka, C.A.A. as the new athletic director for the district effective July 1, 2019. Zupka has been the athletic director for Middletown City Schools since 2016. Prior to Middletown, he was the athletic director at Clark Montessori for four years.

“We could not be more excited to have Aaron to lead our athletics department. He is student-centered and will bring tremendous energy to lead our athletics program to the next level,” said Milford High School Principal Josh Kauffman.

There were 80 applicants for Milford’s athletic director position. Finalists were interviewed by a committee of district administrators, coaches, and parents. Mr. Zupka replaces Mark Trout who is now the athletic director at Milford Junior High School.

“I’m extremely honored to be the next athletic director at Milford High School. I feel I bring an immediate jolt of energy and enthusiasm to my work and that will be contagious to all who are around me,” Zupka said. “My main focus will be building positive student relationships and culture while looking to modernize how we do business in the athletic department. I can’t wait to get going and meet all the wonderful students, staff, coaches, and families in the Milford School District. I’m ready to soar with the Eagles!”

Zupka is a Cleveland native and graduated with his bachelor of science degree in Sports Management with a minor in Business from Xavier University. His past work experience also includes serving as the Assistant Athletic Director at Walnut Hills High School and as a Program Director for the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati.
