Amber Mitchell is the 2019 SEMO Counselor of the Year

“My personal slogan has always been ‘Every student has a story,’ and it is my job to learn their story,” said Amber Mitchell, school counselor at Ritenour High School. “When we learn their story, we get to know what’s really going on because we have students who deal with a lot of traumatic experiences. When they come in the building, that doesn’t stop at the doors.”

On Saturday, September 21, Mitchell will receive the SEMO Counselor of the Year Award at the St. Louis American Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Education Awards Gala, held at the America’s Center.
