Heather Branum comes to Montreat as a graduate from Anderson County High School. After graduating high school, she made her way to the Cumberlands where she was signed by Head Softball Coach, Angie Dean. She played under Dean's instruction during her time as a Patriot.
Branum graduated from Cumberlands in 2004. Since that time she has spent three years teaching at the high school level in the field of special education math. She also gained valuable coaching experience coaching softball for the past three years as both an assistant and then the head coach.
"She is a proven recruiter and outstanding young coach," says Coach Johnson. "Having an assistant coach with a Master's degree sends a message to our players that education is essential".
