South Cobb Success Stories


Desiree' Swiney

 Desiree Sweeney

Hey Eagles, my name is Desiree’ Swiney. I am a wife, a mother of five, an event planner, and a Junior Eagle cheer coach. But of all the hats that I wear, one that I am very proud of is being a member of the class of 2006 South Cobb High School Alumni! During my years at South Cobb I was a cheerleader, a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, a member of the yearbook staff and so much more. Some of my best years were spent in the halls of South Cobb. I graduated with honors in 2006 and went on to pursue my degree. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelors in Marketing. I always knew I wanted to own my own business but I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do exactly. After some encouraging words from friends and family, I started my event planning business in 2009. My career allows me to showcase my creativity and meet so many new people. Some of my proudest events are those that I have produced for the students of South Cobb High. I am also grateful that I am to give back to my community and school by coaching at the middle school cheer level. If I could give my younger self any piece of advice, it would be to never give up on your dreams and to follow you own path!
