Eighth-grade school counselor Ms. Lyn Bush of Valley Springs Middle School has been appointed President-Elect of the North Carolina School Counselor Association (NCSCA). Ms. Bush exemplifies the excellent leadership that allows Buncombe Schools to remain a leading force in education, and in providing services and supports to our students.

“We are very proud of Lyn's advocacy and support for the important work of school counseling and social emotional supports for our students,” said BCS Director of Student Services David Thompson. “I am sure I speak for all Student Services personnel by saying that we will support your work highlighting the importance of comprehensive school counseling programs and ensure school counselors are considered a priority service for all schools.”

Ms. Bush has served Buncombe County as a school counselor for 11 years, while also participating in state and national professional associations. She previously served as Delegate to the Assembly of the NCSCA and was twice elected the NCSCA West Region Vice President. Ms. Bush will continue putting her passion for serving students and counselors to work in her new three-year role as the association’s president.

“I will work hard to represent not only the West region, but all counselors,” she promised.

To other school counselors, Ms. Bush extended an invitation to join their professional peers through the NCSCA.

“You will have a voice at the table in a different way now and I want to represent you in all aspects of the association. That is very important to me,” she said. “I can be most effective with the input of those I work for - you, the membership.”

Buncombe County Schools congratulates Ms. Lyn Bush for her continued success, and is grateful to have such dedicated and involved staff in our schools. Every effort to collaborate and encourage progress at the local and state level exists for the benefit of those we serve - our students.
