Our Athletic Directors

  • All five high schools in the Paulding County School District are members of the Georgia High School Association. They compete in three different regions. 7-AAAAA (East Paulding, Hiram, Paulding County), 5-AAAAAA (South Paulding), and 3-AAAAAAA (North Paulding) The PCSD believes that Interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the high school experience and they provide opportunities for lessons in teamwork, self-discipline, respect, integrity, commitment, character development, and hard work. The extra-curricular athletic programs are voluntary and being a part of them is a privilege that is earned.

    Each PCSD high school has an athletic director that oversees the athletic programs of each high school. Our AD's are:

    Brad Thomason, East Paulding High

    Jeff Wallace, Hiram High

    Ryan Dyer, North Paulding High
