Additionally, he tirelessly advocates for all coaches and athletes both as a member of the MIAAA advisory board and the MSHSAA Ad advisory committee.

Roth has served Parkway for over 30 years and has been Parkway's director of activities and athletics since 2014. Prior to that, he was Central High athletic director for five years.

"Mike always lends a helping hand, a servant heart and a caring ear whenever needed. His caring and optimism, which he brings to his role on a daily basis, creates enthusiasm from others," West High Activities and Athletics Director Brian Kessler said.

In addition to scheduling games and overseeing activities, Roth has been instrumental in developing sports marketing partnerships with the Parkway community. With Roth's help, Parkway has partnerships with Mercy Sports Medicine, Maryville University, Wagner Photography and more.

Roth is the father of five girls. One of his daughters, Hannah Roth, was named Teacher of the Year at Ross Elementary School last year.
