Charlene Worley
Gear Up Coach
South Laurel High School
(606) 862 - 4727

After graduating from Laurel County High School, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree, Master's Degree, and Rank I certification in education.  I taught in the Laurel County School System for 24 1/2 years before I was hired in 2011 to help implement the GEAR UP grant.  In this grant position, I work for Berea College and the Laurel County School System as a GEAR UP Coach.  I provide services to students who are on track to graduate in 2017 in an attempt to help the students be successful in school and to continue their education after graduating from high school.
