Hats off to HCS counselors

Advocate, mentor, teacher, adviser, friend. These are but a few of the countless hats worn by school counselors. Haywood County Schools recognized the unique contributions of their counselors February 1-5 for National School Counseling Week. Executive Director of Special Services Chris Davis, district supervisor to the county’s school counselors, applauds his staff, “We thank each of them for the amazing work they do on a daily basis, their endless efforts, and their unwavering dedication to every child in Haywood County Schools.”
Local school counselors are Dorothy Jackson (Anderson), Twyla King and Demetrice Adams (Haywood Elementary), Angie Carmack (East Side), Emily Carpenter (Sunny Hill), Lenora Oldham and Nicolas Grayson (Haywood Middle) and Doris Leavy, Vickie DeBerry and Laura Clayton (Haywood High).

National School Counseling Week, celebrated annually the first week of February, is designed to draw public awareness to the tremendous contribution of school counselors and the integral role they play in the lives of students.
