Coal Mountain Elementary PTO Board Members

2020 – 2021

President – Ashley Clark

My name is Ashley Clark. My husband Michael and I have two wonderful daughters!  Anslee, our oldest, is a junior at UGA and Allie will be a 5th grader this year. We are a house divided. I am a huge Florida Gators fan and unfortunately, my husband is a Georgia Bulldogs fan. Needless to say things get interesting at our home during football season. I am looking forward to serving as CMES PTO President during these uncertain times. One thing I certainly understand is navigating the unknown! I look forward to an awesome year here on the Mountain!  [email protected]
