Kristy Fekaris, the former Business Department Chair, is a new member of the Seaholm counseling staff for the 2013-2013 school year. Fekaris will take on students with last names starting with Df-J.
The counseling staff now contains five counselors. Each counselor will now be assignedone fifth of students, rather than one fourth, likein previous years.
Although new as a counselor, Fekaris is not new to Seaholm. She has been working at Seaholm for 19 years and moved to the counselor position from her job as a business teacher and department leader.
“It was just the right time in my life for [the new position],” Fekaris said.
Fekaris said she is excited to continue this year with her new position.
Last year Fekaris came down to the counseling offices to decide if that was the place she wanted to work and she loved what she witnessed.
“After I spent one hour at the counseling office, I knew it was where I wanted to be,” Fekaris said.
