The Marshall County Board of Education approved two coaching supplements for the Douglas schools during its July 11 meeting at the central office in Guntersville.

Jerika Beard will coach the volleyball team at Douglas Middle School, and Isabella Wisener will coach the boys and girls cross country teams at Douglas High School.

Wisener is returning to her alma mater after playing four years of tennis at Birmingham-Southern.

In 2015, Wisener received the Class 5A scholar-athlete award and then claimed the Larry D. Striplin Jr. Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award from the Bryant-Jordan Student-Athlete Scholarship Program during her senior year at Douglas.
