Calhoun County Schools announces its employee of the month for February. The system is giving the honor to Pleasant Valley Senior High Counselor Jena Goosby. Goosby has been part of Calhoun County all her life. When she isn’t counseling students, she is also directing the school choir. Goosby says when she was a child, her father became the band director at Alexandria.
She says she would see students come back after they had graduated and tell her father how he had influenced their lives. She says that is how she knew what she wanted to be when she grew up. Goosby helps students prepare for college with filling out forms and figuring out what they want to do once they graduate.
Pleasant Valley Principal, Mark Proper says she always goes above and beyond for everyone in the school. Goosby says she hopes to continue helping students for many more years to come.
Goosby started teaching choir at Weaver and decided from there she would go back to school and make her dream of becoming a school counselor come true.
