Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kayla Barnes

 My name is Kayla Barnes and I currently teach 7th and 8th grade science.  I was born and raised in Vernon and love everything about our community.  I am a 2007 alumni of Lamar County High School. I loved my experience at LCHS and will always cherish the memories of athletics and academics as a BULLDOG!! After graduation, I attended Mississippi University for Women and received my degree in Elementary Education with added concentrations in 7th-12th Science and Social Sciences.  I later added a concentration in Physical Education. Along with teaching, coaching is also a passion I hold. I currently coach the Varsity Girls Volleyball.

I am married to Brad Barnes, who is also a graduate of Lamar County High School.  Brad also helps coach football and baseball here at LCHS. We have one daughter, Arlee Rhea Barnes. Arlee is in 1st grade this year and loves everything about school!  As a family, when we aren’t cheering on the bulldogs, we enjoy traveling, fishing, camping, playing golf, attending church together, and spending time with friends and family. I am blessed to be able to teach and coach at a school that is so dear to me and my family! GO DAWGS!!
