Lafayette High guidance counselor Sharon Sevier is passionate about her work.
“I love working with my students and their families,” she explained.
That passion has led to her involvement in the American School Counselor Association. She is chair of the association’s Board of Directors and helps set the vision for the national association and the school counseling profession. This summer, she traveled to Orlando with 2,100 other school counselors from across the country.
Sevier said, “We engaged in first-class professional development. We heard amazing motivational speakers.”
They also had a very special guest at the conference – First Lady Michelle Obama. Sevier was in charge of introducing her to the stage.
“It was a thrill of a lifetime. She is a very warm and genuine person,” Sevier said.
