Angie taught and coached at Norcross High School for 10 years. During her 10-year coaching tenure she led the Lady Blue Basketball team to four state championships ( 2010, 2011, and 2013), two times state runner-up ( 2015 and 2017), and the Final Four in 2012. The longtime coach who has over 500 wins, was also a great mentor and advocate for the kids. She was not just a ‘mom’ to the the girls on the basketball team, she was a lifelong mentor. The basketball girls have felt a sense of family that she has instilled in the Lady Blue Basketball Program.
In her years at Norcross, coach Hembree demonstrated a passion for developing success both on and off the court. In just a few short years she turned the women’s basketball program into a perennial power. This has provided opportunities for students to continue playing at the next level while furthering their education. In addition to basketball, she showed her support to many of the other facets that make NHS great. Although medical issues forced her to retire early, her legacy will carry forward as will her support of all things Norcross.
