CRESTVIEW — Fresh faces in the guidance department will greet Bulldogs this fall following retirements and transfers.

"The three guidance counselors we started with last year have all transferred to other schools or positions," Crestview High School principal Bob Jones said. "That allowed us to open up their positions."

Jones, assistant principal Dexter Day and a team of educators launched a search that drew a new secretary, a previous counselor and two new counselors.

Leslie Alford, a former district office secretary, transferred to Crestview High as the new guidance department administrative assistant after Becky Suggs retired.

Keitha Holloway, a former counselor, returned to Crestview High in the spring. Her position was restructured to a 12-month job instead of 10-month appointment.

Assistant principal Brandon McSween, who transferred to Crestview High from Laurel Hill School earlier in the year and oversees the guidance department, said the school hadn't offered year-round guidance services in several years.

The change serves students’ best interest, Assistant Superintendent of School Operations Nick Kootsouradis said.
