Ms. Cindy Coan

I am a proud Russellville High School Alumni… “Class of 1985.”  Upon graduating from RHS I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics Education from the University of North Alabama and a Master’s Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education from Alabama A & M.  I am now in my 28th  year of teaching at Russellville High School. 

I was born and raised in Franklin County and have lived for 28 years in the Tharptown community.  I am blessed with two daughters Kara and Maggie.  Kara is a 2009 graduate of Russellville High School and a 2013 graduate of the University of North Alabama with a B.S. degree in Business Management. Kara is employed by VF Wrangler in Hackleburg as a payroll clerk.  She is married to Seth Pendergrass.   My 2nd daughter Maggie is a more recent graduate of RHS with the class of 2013.  She followed Kara and I to the University of North Alabama were she received a degree in Political Science/Pre Law in 2017.  Maggie is now studying law at Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham.  My family grew during the summer of 2019 when I welcomed my first grandchild- James Dean "JD" Pendergrass- born July 14th, 2019.  

 I consider myself truly blessed to work in such a great school and community.  Thank you for letting me be just a small part of your child’s life.  It’s GREAT  to be a Golden Tiger!
