Hello from Kindergarten!!!!My name is Suzanne Rhoades Elmore. I have been in Kinston all of my life.  I began kindergarten at Kinston Elementary School in 1985 as well as graduating in 1998.  At Kinston High School, I was active in the sports program as I played Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, and was a Cheerleader from seventh through the twelth grade.  As a senior, I had the priveledge to be a part of the 1997 State Volleyball Championship team.  This was a huge accomplishment for OUR family as my sister Tiffany Rhoades Johnson was part of the team as well.  To top that off our mom, Amelia Rhoades, was our coach. This was the first state championship for the girls program in volleyball in 1997.  My mom started the Volleyball at Kinston in 1972, and now I have became the Head Volleyball Coach in 2012.  Tiffany and I coach the Junior High, Junior Varsity, an the Varsity Volleyball Teams together since 2014.  


I am married to Adam Elmore since 2004, and we live in Kinston with our daughter Mollie Mae Elmore. She attends Kinston School.  When I am not teaching or coaching, I love to go shopping, water ski, go to the beach, and be with friends and family.

Parents- Harold and Amelia Rhoades

Brother- Bric Rhoades

Sister- Tiffany Rhoades Johnson

I also have 2 nephews and 5 nieces who attend Kinston School!
