  • Four-year volleyball player at Indiana University.

Cydryce McMillian’s love for engaging and interacting with young minds has been her motivation as a coach and teacher for as long as she can remember. Since her first assistant coaching role with the Division I volleyball program at Texas State University, she’s spread her wings as a championship-winning coach, respected high school teacher, and even founder of a camp program aimed at introducing kids to the fun of volleyball.

“I believe in hands-on teaching and student-driven discussions,” says Ms. McMillian. “My students exude confidence in my classroom and understand that asking questions is encouraged.” As a PE teacher and head volleyball coach, Ms. McMillian calls on nearly 20 years of coaching experience—plus more than 10 years as a high school physics and PE/health teacher in the Crowley and College Station school districts and Albuquerque public schools. In 2014, she led her Albuquerque volleyball squad to its first 6A state championship in more than 30 years and was named Coach of the Year by the New Mexico Activities Association.

A biology major and co-captain of the volleyball team while at Indiana University, Ms. McMillian went on to earn a master’s degree in kinesiology with a concentration in applied sport science—and is currently pursuing a doctorate in athletic administration and sport marketing. A certified group fitness and Zumba instructor, she introduced the district’s first live aerobic fitness curriculum while in Albuquerque. Perhaps it’s easy to see how she stays fit herself, since she has an equally active husband and four children to keep up with.
