Carmen Yarbrough started coaching the Chiefettes in August of 2006. Since Carmen took over the program, the Chiefettes have transformed into a highly competitive program competing annually at Universal Dance Association (UDA) Nationals, regional UDA competitions, and local competitions within Georgia. The Chiefettes have also evolved into a staple Spirit group at McIntosh by dancing on the sidelines of football games, and performing halftime of basketball games.
While serving as head coach of the Chiefettes, Carmen has watched several dancers go on to dance at the collegiate level including the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia College and State University, the University of Kentucky, Southeastern Louisiana University, Memphis University, College of Charleston, Vanderbilt University, and Mercer University.
Carmen has also been a member of the National Dance Coaches Association, Georgia Cheerleading Coaches Association, and the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Competitive Dance Committee.
