Michael E. (Fernandez) Zacate
Mike was instrumental in the establishment of the IHSA Chess State Tournament. As an instructor and chess coach at Evergreen Park High School in 1968, he sought IHSA guidance in how to start a statewide chess championship. Organizing the tournament himself for many years, Mike finally persuaded the IHSA to take over the event in 1975. Ever since, Mike has served as chairman of the IHSA Chess Advisory Committee and as Tournament Director, and he was instrumental in writing the Chess Terms and Conditions and IHSA Chess Rule Book. Now retired from teaching and coaching, he retains his IHSA duties and shows no signs of slowing down.

The USCF executive board has selected Illinois native Mike Zacate to receive the USCF Outstanding Career Achievement award. Zacate has been active at all levels of Illinois chess since 1967. Thanks to his efforts, chess was added as an official sport in the Illinois State High School Association in 1974, and Zacate served as Chair of the IHSA Advisory Committee on Chess until 2010. He recently worked to help the Illinois Elementary School Association establish its first elementary chess championship.
Zacate has also been active in the Illinois Chess Association, serving as Illinois Chess Bulletin editor in the early 70s, and as ICA President. He was one of the first people to become a USCF National Tournament Director. He has served as a USCF delegate on several occasions and worked on the USCF Rules Committee on revisions to the USCF rulebook.
