Cheyenne Wilson is the girls basketball coach at Mt. Hermon School.

Wilson takes over the program after spending the last two years at Varnado.

Wilson was the head coach and an assistant the year before.

“It’s pretty nice out here,” Wilson said. “It’s different from all of the other schools in Washington Parish because we’re pre-k through 12th grade. I was excited to get out here because it’s a small town. The parents have welcomed me with open arms. I’ve had a few parents help me get things going. I love working for (principal) Mrs. Dawn (Seal). I can’t exaggerate working for her enough. She’s welcomed me with open arms. She saw potential in me. She’s known me a long time and she knows that I know basketball. She sees I’m a strong female who wants to build up the female sports here.”

Prior to coaching at Varnado, Wilson graduated from Franklinton in 2013 and Southeastern Louisiana University in 2018.

At Franklinton, Wilson played guard for the Lady Demons basketball team.

She was an all-district honorable mention player for two years.

Wilson also played AAU basketball from seventh grade though 10th or 11th grade.

At SLU, Wilson played intramural basketball.

Mt. Hermon athletic director/assistant principal Jeff Thomas said the schoo is excited to have Wilson.

“She’s doing a really good job and she’s working really hard with the kids,” Thomas said.

Wilson is a social studies and science teacher.

Wilson is married to Reggie Wilson and they have a 7-month old boy Ayce Wilson.
