WHS Counseling Newsletter

August 2015

Welcome Back Wildcats!

Welcome back to all our returning students and a welcome to WHS to our incoming freshmen and new students! This is the first newsletter of this school year. Newsletters will be sent out every few weeks. In each issue, you will find information on what is currently happening in the Counseling Office, including scholarships, college and career planning resources, open house dates, important dates to note, and other opportunities. The newsletter often contains information that pertains to all grade levels.

Meet the Counselors

My name is Mrs. Murphy and I will be taking over for Mr. Watts. This is my first year as a counselor and just recently graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University. I received my undergraduate degree at Northwest Missouri State University in Psychology. I then worked for the Department of Social Services for Clay County Missouri investigating child abuse and neglect and currently just finished up my time as a Behavioral Health Tech at St. Luke's Hospital in Smithville. I am from Omaha Nebraska and have lived in the Kansas City area since 2009! I am a big Chiefs, Royals, and Nebraska Cornerhusker fan! I am excited to be one of your counselors at Washington High School and look forward to meeting all of the staff in the building as well as the students!
