Honoring West Harrison’s Michelle Borho for National School Counseling Week

An occupation that focuses on student success while ensuring they feel loved deserves a whole lot of recognition.

National School Counseling Week focuses public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors and how they positively impact students.

Michelle Borho has been the school counselor at West Harrison Middle School for four years and it’s evident that she has a heart for her job and her students.

A school day for Borho may include proactive services like diploma options and career planning or simply being a safe space for students.

When asked what her favorite part of the job is, she says it’s getting to be there for the students. “Easily getting to be just a small part of their journey, especially in middle school when they’re really discovering who they are, learning more about their interests and strengths, and so getting to be a small part of hopefully just an office and a person where they feel like they can talk to and where they feel like they’re accepted and welcomed. That’s usually the best part of the job.”

Borho says she truly learns from her students daily and feels fortunate to work for the Harrison County School District.
