Hello my name is Ernie Ellis, I am the principal of Woodstation Elementary and I will be participating in Dancing with the Stars of North Georgia to help provide accessible, affordable, quality primary healthcare services for children and adults in North Georgia!  Please consider voting for me at   


I have been in the healthcare field as an Radiologic Technologist for thirty-eight years.  Being in healthcare for that long makes raising money for Primary Healthcare for our students and families so very special to me and something I hold close to my heart.  I began my educational career in healthcare science at Lakeview Fort Oglethorpe High School in 1999. I moved to Heritage High School when it opened, in my time there I was fortunate to have several different roles such as teacher, coach, athletic director, and assistant prinipal.  In 2011, I was blessed to receive the principalship of Woodstation Elementary School. I have been fortunate over the past 7 years to serve the students, parents, and staff of Woodstation which I believe is one of the best school in the country.

As for dancing I love it! Now am I good at it… I think so! It’s all about how confident you are with your moves or lack there of. As far as stages i’ve performed on I didn’t want to mention this but I did win a cruise ship dance off back in 2007 beating out Martha from Texas who was 82.


I promise I will give it my all and try not to have knee surgery #7 while doing this. I look forward to working with my dance pro Shanon Herrmenn. Here’s to raising money for a good cause all while having a little fun! In light of it being voting season my name is Ernie Ellis and I approve this message.

Primary Healthcare Centers is a group of non-profit community health centers dedicated to improving the health care status of our patients and community by providing accessible, affordable,quality primary health care services to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Catoosa County has one facility at Tiger Creek Elementary called Tiger Care.  I would really appreciate your vote.


Primary Healthcare’s service area includes the following Georgia Counties:

  • Catoosa

  • Chattooga

  • Dade

  • Gordon

  • Polk

  • Walker


For more information about their services, you can visit their website:


Sponsorships:  Of course, the best and quickest way to make and exceed my goal is to get at least one or two of these!  Also, Sponsored tables sit right next to the dance floor with the Presenting Sponsor being front and center with the best view of the “action”. AND, a Sponsored table will pull your $1000 tables closer in to the dance floor because we place your “cheering section” together!  The Gold Sponsors ($5000) tables are next to the dance floor, not just front and center! The Silver Sponsors ($2500) tables may be second row from the dance floor or depending on how many $5000 tables we have, could be at the bottom of the dance floor also depending on when it is paid. First ones in get the best tables!  Sponsorships can be purchased on the website however, historically you can come to me with the sponsorship form and a check. Most importantly, I will need a jpeg logo from a sponsor for the website and promo materials.


STAR Champion Tables:  These are the 4 tables that each of us have to “sell” to family and friends! With 13 STARS, that is 51 tables. We can have a max of 60 tables of 10 in the room with the dance floor in the center.  There are 9 tables next to the dance floor. They can be purchased on my personal page on the website. **As individual tickets are purchased under my name, Mrs. Whaley will keep track of those and use them to “fill” yout tables.


Voting:   I want to Encourage you to “vote” for me on the website, especially if you cannot attend the event for some reason.  $1=1 vote.   Those $25/$10/$5 votes add up!!  Remember, there is a great prize for that!  A HUGE Mirror Ball Trophy called the People’s Choice Winner!!  Voting begins now for pre-event and we will have plenty of voting the night of the event!!


Thanks for your help and your vote!
