I am so excited to start this year off as Director of College and Career Counseling at Currey Ingram Academy. I have so enjoyed getting to know some of the staff this summer. Meeting with seniors and their families this summer has been exciting. I am so looking forward to seeing where this year takes each of our seniors. Great things are ahead for the Class of 2021.

I look forward to meeting the junior, sophomore, and freshman classes very soon. I will be doing classroom visits and will want to meet with each of you this year as we work towards your college/career planning and exploration together. We will be having grade-level student and parent meetings throughout the year, and I will be emailing students and parents on those as we reach those dates.

Listed below some upcoming reminders as we approach the beginning of our school year:
