Morgan Bullock, a graduate of Franklin County High School and Campbellsville University, will be the new coach of the Eminence Warrior volleyball team.

Bullock is leaving the Franklin County system where she was the head coach of the Elkhorn Middle School softball team and assistant coach for the Franklin County High School softball team.

Before returning to Franklin County, Bullock taught at Green County High School where she was assistant basketball coach for the girls’ team.

Bullock graduated Summa Cum Laude from Campbellsville in December 2011. She played softball for the Tigers all four years and caught 72 consecutive games.

Bullock joined the Western Kentucky Hilltopper Battalion of the ROTC in 2009. She was commissioned in December of 2011 as a Distinguished Honor Graduate, which put her in the top 15 percent of cadets in the program. She is currently a 1st Lieutenant in the Army Reserves.

Bullock will be teaching U.S. History, Military Topics and Selected Topics: Civil Rights Movement at EHS.

“I have played multiple sports while growing up but made the decision to focus specifically on softball during high school,” Bullock said. “I also served as a graduate assistant at Campbellsville University for the softball program for a semester and continue to work as a camp instructor. I also give local softball lessons with my business, Diamond Dynamics.”

Bullock sees coaching as a method to help kids in a different way.

“Athletics is an avenue for youth to acquire their dreams,” she said. “I want to be a part of their journey and give them the resources they need to reach their goals.

“I have had many influential coaches along my journey that motivated and pushed me to become the person that I am today and I want to give back and be that person for the youth of today.

“My intent as a coach is to instill the characteristics that a student-athlete needs to be successful: leadership, responsibility and selfless service.”

Bullock, who has been training with the Army Reserves this summer, is looking forward to starting her new journey with the EHS volleyball team.

 “I am excited about the new challenge that being the volleyball coach at Eminence High School presents and honored that I was selected,” Bullock said. “I plan to work hard to continue the tradition of success that they have had.”
