Head Coach Katherine Nolley

Katherine Harris Nolley is from Stone Mountain, Georgia. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, earning her B.S. in Education. She later completed certification in Special Education. Previously, Nolley pursued a degree in Nursing and worked as a school nurse at Sims Elementary School in Conyers, Georgia.

Nolley joined LOA in 2010 teaching Science to grades Pre-K through five. She now teaches Special Education in the upper school. She also serves as the director of Titan Tech, the after-school program of Lake Oconee Academy.

She has served as statistician for the varsity girls and boys basketball throughout her years at LOA. She is thrilled to begin her first year as the basketball sideline cheer coach. Her mission is to develop women committed to excellence while building character. Our goal as cheerleaders is to serve to the athletes by encouraging them, support the fans by leading them and represent the school throughout the community.

Nolley devotes her free time to her children, McKenzey and Ace.
