Mallory White attended Maroa-Forsyth High School from 2003 to 2007. She played volleyball all four years. Her fondest memories of her high school volleyball career is being able to play with her closest friends, the local fan support, and the close-knit community. She attended Illinois State University on a full-ride volleyball scholarship. One of her many accomplishments while playing at ISU was that she was the fifth player in ISU history to surpass 1,000 digs and 1,000 kills in her career. She was a graduate teaching assistant for two years while receiving her masters degree in communication. She met her husband, Cody White, at Illinois State University, and they currently have three children: Blakely, Brooks, and Baylor. After college, she volunteered as a freshman girls volleyball coach and then was head coach from the years of 2018 to 2022. She is currently a stay-at-home mom. The support from her family through her high school and collegiate career and into her coaching career was very important in her success. If anyone remembers her for anything, she wants them to know how much she truly loved the girls that she coached and her passion and love for teaching the game of volleyball.
