Dohn Community High School Athletics Department
Our Value, Mission, Vision, and Strategic Goals
and Dohn Athletic Teams
The Dohn Community High School Department of Athletics recognizes a commitment to serve its student-athletes. Our primary commitment is to provide an opportunity for student-athletes to fully develop their academic and athletic potential. We understand that through practice, training and competition, excellence is attained. The department strives to instill in each student-athlete:
- Good sportsmanship and personal integrity
- Loyalty to the team and the ability to compete together as a team
- An appreciation of the benefits of hard work, motivation and perseverance
- Pride in accomplishments gained through fair and honest means
A strong athletic program generates pride and enthusiasm in students, alumni, the school as a whole, and the community which it serves. The school’s athletic program helps make public the accomplishments and academic goals it has attained.
With the on-going support and appreciation of these values, by the director and the school board, the following have been established.
Integrity: Panther Athletics has an obligation to exhibit the highest integrity, everywhere it goes and in everything it does.
Excellence: Panther Athletics resolves to demonstrate excellence in everything it does.
Loyalty: Panther Athletics promotes a demonstration of loyalty to our school, our teams, and our fans. In order to understand where it is and where it wants to go, it is vital to define those qualities that it holds in the highest regard.
Our vision prompts us to answer these guiding questions:
- What qualities make a national championship team?
- What traits does a successful graduate possess?
What makes an individual a “Dohn Panthers”?
In supporting and promoting the Dohn Community High School mission, Panther Athletics maintains the trust and respect of alumni and fans. This is accomplished by graduating student-athletes, striving for excellence and competing with integrity.
Our purpose is to provide a sound, competitive athletics program that represents the school in a distinguished manner. In turn, this provides student-athletes the opportunity to develop physically, socially, ethically, and mentally. Therefore, the athletic program will provide:

Dohn Community High School is committed to excellence and our athletic department mirrors this.
It is the goal of the athletic department to serve and direct student-athletes along a path that combines their educational and athletic pursuits.

We will field two boys’ teams and one girls’ team. The boy’s teams will represent Dohn Community High School and Dohn Prep Academy. Our coaches recognize that basketball intelligence quotient and work ethic rule the game. This knowledge helps each coach support the Dohn Prep students as they prepare to take the ACT and SAT tests as well as improves their core NCAA grade point average. With knowledge of this philosophy, our student athletes have the potential to be stellar college students that earn the best scholarships available.
