During lunchtime, school counselor Kim Hall takes a break from her desk and roams the hallways of Providence Grove High School.
On her five-minute walk, she encourages a senior to apply to UNC, consoles a student dealing with a scratchy throat and reminds a young teenager to see a teacher.
“We try to make sure that we’re accessible to students during their free times,” Hall says.
Hall has been a school counselor for 29 years. She says she tries to make more time for students as her clerical duties have grown over the years.
