“There were some very qualified candidates that applied for the position, but we believe Trent’s experience in education and athletics, passion for Southern Boone and his relationships with current staff and students made him the perfect choice for the job,” said Christopher Felmlee, Superintendent of Schools. “Not only does Trent have the history of building successful programs, but he understands how important activities and athletics are in the lives of our students and how valuable they are at our schools.”

Tracy has been the varsity head football coach and teacher at Southern Boone High School for the past 8 years.

He’s married to Christina Tracy, who’s a 1st grade teacher at Southern Boone Primary School and the high school cheerleading coach. Trent and Christina have a 4-year-old daughter, Holly.

“I’m excited about this opportunity and I’m looking forward to transitioning into this new role with the school district,” Tracy said. “The Southern Boone community is amazing and has always been very supportive of our students and the various programs, clubs and groups they are involved in.”

With Tracy becoming the new Activities Director, he will be leaving his position as head football coach for Southern Boone. The search for a new varsity head football coach will begin immediately.
