As Northmont’s Athletic Administrator, Spiller began the Northmont Sportsmanship Club, which earned Northmont the OHSAA Harold A. Meyer Sportsmanship Award for 15 years in a row. For the past 22 years, Spiller has been a tournament manager for numerous sports for both the Southwest District and the Ohio High School Athletic Association. She has added three varsity sports and under her leadership, all competition sites have been renovated and upgraded.
