Rick Dominick, Port Clinton High School Athletic Director stated, “We are very fortunate to find someone of Coach Ward's caliber to lead our Volleyball Program.  She brings to Port Clinton a good deal of experience coaching and Kelly is a very energetic person.  In our conversation her passion for Volleyball became very evident and everyone that knew her from Sandusky spoke very highly of her in regards to her knowledge of the game, work ethic, and ability to relate to her players.” 

Kelly lives in Sandusky with her husband, Andy, the chef at Edgewood Manor in Port Clinton, and their three children.  She and her husband also have a catering business, Ward Catering.  Coach Ward stated, “I am excited to come and coach at Port Clinton.  I love the area and look forward to this new opportunity to build a strong program.”
