(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS continues to add new staff as the school keeps growing.

New LRHS guidance counselor Melody West enjoys her first year at the school

A new guidance counselor comes to the campus all the way from Texas. Melody West is in charge of all the students with the last names Me – Sa.

West came from Texas where she was a dance instructor as well as a teacher for six years, and a guidance counselor for two years. She is currently in her second year in Florida as a guidance counselor.

West gives some valuable advice for high school students, “Get involved and try new things. Try being independent, and doing things on your own, ” she said.

West also commented, “There is nothing wrong with failing at something new, you can always try it again or find something new. Don’t sweat the small things just keep looking forward and find something you can enjoy and find yourself in.”

West said she has felt welcomed as a new Mustang at the ranch.
