Guidance Counselors

K-2 Guidance Counselor-  Cassandra Best
3-5 Guidance Counselor - Valorie Gregory
The Wayne County School Counselor Association promotes excellence in school counseling by continuing professional growth and development and educating our students, our colleagues and our communities. 
School counselors serve as an integral part of the school environment.  While our roles and duties may vary from school to school, our guiding principals focus on the personal, social, academic and career development of all students.
All school counselors working in a public NC school are required to have a Master's Degree in School Counseling from an accredited university.  In addition, many school counselors have advanced degrees or certifications such as PhD's, LPC (licensed professional counselor), NCC (national certified counselor), NBPTS (national board of professional teaching standards) and others.
Wayne County currently has 48 school counselors serving approximately 19,000 students.
Mission Statement

Our effort in these areas for our students are a part of a collaborative model that includes our parents, teachers and adminstrators.
