Coach Manus grew up in a coaching family, started by her grandad, Coach Ray Manus, who coached football at Roswell High School for 42 years! She cheered both for football sideline and competition starting at a young age  through her senior year of high school. She graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2017. Coach Manus taught kindergarten and was the head cheerleading coach at Sequoyah High School for 5 years before coming to Roswell High School.

Coach Manus looks forward to returning for her 2nd year at RHS cheer and continuing to build the RHS cheerleading program in new ways while holding onto the strong traditions that make Roswell such a special community! Last year, she led the competition team to region runner up and 10th in the state, while also cheering our football team on as we made it all the way to the semi-finals!

Hello Roswell families!  My name is Tina Cameron and I will be the basketball assistant cheer coach this year! I very much enjoyed coaching basketball cheer the past 2 seasons.

I have been a 1:1 Paraprofessional with a student in our special needs CBI program at RHS for 4 years and love working with all of our students and being a part of the program.  I was at RUMCK preschool for 4 1/2 years before coming to RHS and loved the kids and that program as well!

My husband and I have been married and living in Roswell for about 24 yrs.  We were both born and raised in southern CA.  Our kids went to MPE and Crabapple.  We have continuously been involved in their schools and sports since their Roswell Rec days (Jr Hornets football, RHS soccer & volleyball and club teams).

Our son graduated from RHS and attends KSU and our daughter is a rising senior at RHS.  Our family has enjoyed many RHS football, soccer, and volleyball games for many years.  My personal interests are spending time with my family, the outdoors (especially hiking & the beach), cooking and planting. Looking forward to a fun season!
