SCA is excited to announce the new Director of Athletics: Mr. Robert Jemison. With his extensive experience in coaching...
With his extensive experience in coaching, administration, and wellness program development, coupled with his faith in Christ and love for the mission of Catholic schools, Mr. Jemison will play a key role in the implementation of our strategic plan. A Nashville native, Mr. Jemison began his teaching and coaching career at his high school Alma Mater, Father Ryan. During his sixteen years of service there, he taught science, math, and physical education and coached wrestling, football, and girls and boys track. From there, Mr. Jemison worked as Director of Athletics at Harding Academy for five years. Since 2010, Mr. Jemison has been at Battle Ground Academy, serving six years as Upper School Athletics Director and five years as Middle School Assistant Athletics Director and Wellness Coordinator.
You only have to meet Mr. Jemison once to know that he has a gift for inspiring and leading youth – both on and off the sports field. He sees clearly the role of athletics in the cultivation of virtues so essential for life. Both his professional experience in high school athletics and his personal experience as the father of three daughters make him the ideal person to lead SCA athletics. He also will be our head track coach.
Mr. Jemison holds an Associate of Arts Degree from Marion Military Institute; a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from Texas A&M; and a Master of Education in Health, Physical Education and Recreation Administration from Tennessee State University. We are excited to welcome him to St. Cecilia!
