She graduated from Berry College in Rome, Georgia, and has been serving as a public educator for seventeen years in Bartow County Schools, Gordon County Schools, and now in the Cartersville City School System. Cartersville, Georgia has been home to Mrs. Vaughan for the past sixteen years, where she met her husband Travis Vaughan and where they are raising their family. Katie Vaughan’s husband, Travis Vaughan, is a Cartersville High School graduate and is currently serving as a 7th-grade teacher at Cartersville Middle School. They have two children, Jackson (8) and Emma (5), who are both students in the Cartersville City School System. Mrs. Vaughan serves on the Bartow Literacy Council and as a youth leader at her church, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. When Mrs. Vaughan was asked to participate in Dancing with the Stars, she was excited to join this worthy cause to serve her community. She sees first-hand every day how Backpack Buddies, the Least of These program, and Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter positively support students and families in both Cartersville City and Bartow County Schools. Mrs. Vaughan’s passion is serving children, and she is honored to raise money for these worthy foundations.
