North Carolina High School Athletic Association

Association Spotlight: Black History Month — Que Tucker



During the month of February, in honor of Black History Month, the NCHSAA website will feature information about African-Americans who have made major contributions to the great tradition of high school sports in our state. We hope you find these both entertaining and informative.



                  Que Tucker has enjoyed an outstanding career at the North Carolina High School Athletic Association after successful stints coaching at the high school and college levels.

            A graduate of Stoneville High, she attended Mars Hill College, where she was an outstanding athlete and graduated in 1974.  Tucker came to the NCHSAA in 1991 after several years as an assistant women's basketball coach at N.C. State under Kay Yow. She is currently deputy commissioner of the NCHSAA, where she oversees the entire NCHSAA sports program, after helping to start the Association's acclaimed Student Services program.

            As a high school coach at Reidsville, her women's basketball teams posted a 145-104 mark during a period from 1978 through '88 and her volleyball squads went 58-16. She also served as a game official in several different sports.

            She is a charter member of the Mars Hill College Athletic Hall of Fame and was inducted in the class of 2010 to the NCHSAA Hall of Fame. In addition, she was listed as among the “100 To Remember” administrators list as part of the NCHSAA’s centennial celebration.
