Bo Coln

I am a native of Glen, Mississippi, but I have been in Alabama for over 19 years. I played basketball at Birmingham-Southern College (95' NAIA National Champions) and baseball at Northeast Mississippi Community College. In 2013 I was given the opportunity to serve as 9th Grade Academy Principal at Grissom and Varsity Basketball coach. I am currently the 9th Grade Academy Principal at Grissom HS. My wife, Dr. Evelyn Frazier-Coln has a dental practice here in Huntsville, and we have 4 wonderful children, James David (10), Emma Kate (9), Anderson (6), and Finley (3). When I’m not pulling for the “Tigers” during the week, I pull for the “Tide and Panthers” on the weekends.
