It’s National School Counseling Week, and Ohio County Schools is thanking Wheeling Park High School counselor Jill Maloney for her dedicated service to Patriot students. Maloney served as a mental health counselor for 21 years before becoming a counselor at Wheeling Park six years ago. She said one of her favorite parts of being a school counselor is developing a trusting relationship with a student. “It's amazing to watch a student learn about who they are, make steps to develop into who they want to be and know that they are cared about and supported,” Maloney said. “School counselors have the potential to really impact a student's personal growth, and that is such an important role.” Maloney said she loves Wheeling Park High School for a number of reasons, and she believes the school’s counselors are exceptional. “There are so many things I love about working at Park,” she said. “I love the energy of the students and the team that I work with. We all have different strengths, and we try to work off each other's strengths to make sure we are supporting our students. This team is in it for the right reasons, and that is important to me.” Photo: Wheeling Park High School Counselor Jill Maloney is shown with Patriot student Zariah Marling. #TogetherWeAchieve #expereinceTHEPARK #WVEd

It’s National School Counseling Week, and Ohio County Schools is thanking Triadelphia Middle School counselor Kathie Seidler for her dedicated service to Raider students. Seidler is in her first year as Triadelphia’s counselor, but she has been a member of the staff for five years. She said appreciates her role as a counselor because the students she helps are going through an important phase in their development. “When most people think of middle school, they think of how awkward and uncomfortable those years were,” Seidler said. “The kids are exploring who they are as they go through physical, emotional and social changes. Being a support for my students means the world to me. Working through the tough times and listening to their stories make the laughter harder, the smiles bigger and the pride stronger. I am constantly amazed by how smart, creative and funny our Raiders are.” Seidler has a special connection to Triadelphia Middle School, as she was once a Raider student. She said she looks forward to serving Triadelphia students in the years to come. “I have many ideas to serve our students and families,” Seidler said. “As a former student of Triadelphia, I am so honored to be a part of its future.” Photo: Triadelphia Middle School Counselor Kathie Seidler is pictured with Raider student John Gass. #TogetherWeAchieve #WVEd
