The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association announced two finalists for its executive director opening Wednesday.

One was Tim Jackson, a director of athletics for the Clark County School District. The other was Ed Thompson, a director of athletics for the Florida High School Athletic Association.

Jackson and Thompson will interview for the position at an NIAA Board of Control meeting at Palace Station on March 19, according to an NIAA news release. The meeting is open to the public. The release said the new executive director will be named following the interviews.

The NIAA’s previous executive director, Donnie Nelson, announced Dec. 1 he will step down at the end of his term June 1.
