I am proud to work as a guidance counselor at J. Watson Bailey Middle School in Kingston. Our school community is extremely caring and supportive of those in need. There are many examples that I can think of but one comes to mind in particular:
Unfortunately, a family in our community lost its home to a fire a few months ago. Through donations and fund-raising efforts, my colleagues and our students raised more than $1,000 to help this family.
