Stringer named Kemper boy’s basketball coach
The Kemper County High School Athletic Department is excited to announce the appointment of Michael Stringer as the new boys basketball coach for Kemper County High School.
Stringer received his bachelor’s degree in General Education from Alcorn State University. He comes to Kemper County High School with an extensive coaching career for the past 19 years, which has prepared him for his new role.
Stringer’s coaching resume includes head basketball coach at Oakhurst Middle School, Coahoma Agricultural High School, and Coahoma Community College.
During his career, Stringer was able to complete four straight winning seasons and earned a district championship in 2014 as head coach.
“Coach Stringer brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our basketball program” said Hilute Hudson, superintendent of Kemper County School District. “He has a passion for the game, student achievement, and mentoring young men. I firmly believe Coach Stringer will have a positive impact on both our basketball program and our student-athletes.”
Kemper County High School’s Boys and Girls Varsity teams were the MHSAA 5-3A District Champions for the 2020-2021 basketball season and advanced to the playoffs.
“I am thankful to be in this position to have the opportunity to shape the lives of our athletes both on and off the field,” Stringer said. “There are many things that I have learned over the years as a head coach, including that the best long term investment is the one that we make with our students, which yields a great return.”
