Most recently he has been working at West Hall High School as a science teacher, assistant football coach and assistant track coach.
Jarrard said regarding her nomination, "I am excited that Ben will be joining our War Eagle family. He brings with him the total package. His vast athletic experiences including being a head coach of multiple sports along with his academic knowledge as a science teacher are the perfect combination to help move Chestatee forward."
