1 min read

May River High School Lead Counselor Carrie Carter is the Beaufort County School District’s 2019 School Counselor of the Year.

In addition to honoring Carter, the district also recognized Bluffton Middle School’s Gina Jacobs as Middle School Counselor of the Year and Coosa Elementary School’s Nicole Bossak as Elementary School Counselor of the Year.

“Effective school counselors are a critically important component in any successful school,” said Interim Superintendent Herb Berg.  “They work closely with students to move them forward academically and socially, and they also work with parents to keep them informed about their children’s progress.” 

Carter said she was “surprised, appreciative and thankful for my team that was here to support me.”

“I love seeing kids come back five or 10 years later – once they’ve gone off and joined the military or gone to school – and see them be successful in life,” Carter said.

More than 20 local businesses and community members sponsored the awards breakfast and donated gifts for the school district’s counselors.
