Periodically, The NFHS Voice will be presented in the form of a video. This week, NFHS CEO Karissa Niehoff says the boorish behavior of fans who attend sporting events is being normalized and even encouraged. A shift to positive behavior by fans in high school sports must occur if officials are going to be retained.

Dr. Karissa L. Niehoff is in her fourth year as chief executive officer of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) in Indianapolis, Indiana. .
