Mieka Gillespie

Site Coordinator, Smokey Road Middle School


ELEVATE Coweta Students is excited to announce that we have added a new Site Coordinator to our team. We now have a full time Site Coordinator, Mieka Gillespie, at Smokey Road Middle School. With the support of the Coweta County School System and the staff and administration at Smokey Road, ELEVATE will now have a staff person onsite who will provide an extra layer of support for students. “ELEVATE has had Site Coordinators in place a Ruth Hill Elementary and Newnan High School for a number of years and now having one at Smokey Road will fill the gap that existed. Now students that have had support at Ruth Hill will easily transition to our Site Coordinator at Smokey Road. These students will have continued support to ensure their success in middle school and as they enter high school and beyond” said Kevin Barbee, Executive Director. Dr Keafer Triplett, Smokey Road Middle School Principal stated. “We are very blessed to have her here. The students have responded tremendously to her and our administrators and leadership team looking forward to working with her. It is the start of a great relationship. We are looking forward to many many years of collaboration with ELEVATE Coweta Students”.
