This fall, Lewis and Clark Community College introduces Johnna Kinney as the new head volleyball and women’s tennis coach, sports information director, and book loan coordinator.

Kenney got her start here at L&C on Aug. 1. She is from Kansas City, MO but her hometown is St. Louis, MO where she resided for 32 years. Kinney graduated from Park College, then attended SIUE obtaining a bachelor’s degree in communications and business, as well as a master’s degree in education and kinesiology.
Kinney’s past experiences involve coaching at the junior college level for 15 years, and the club level for 18 years. Now she and the Athletic Department are getting ready for fall sports season with their teams.

Kinney stated that sports and being active are what she’s all about. In her free time, Kinney works at Fleet Feet, a running specialty store.

“The best part about what I do professionally is being able to help student athletes be successful on the court and in life,” Kinney said.

She has stated that she enjoys her job very much and all it has to offer: “It’s ever changing and I don’t have to sit at a desk. I love working with people.”

Since her arrival, the staff of L&C, as well as the faculty and administration, have all been completely supportive of her and her efforts.

“Everyone takes pride for L&C in this college,” Kinney said.

As far as goals are concerned, Kinney is set on having both winning volleyball and tennis seasons. She can be found in the Athletics Department in the Riverbend Arena, room RA 124.
