Congratulations to school counselor Mr. Trevor Echols on his recognition as the November 2023 FCPS CARES Region 4 Recipient of the Month, presented by the FCPS Department of Human Resources.

The FCPS CARES Program is an opportunity for parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story below, so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Below is the write-up submitted by a parent of a South County High School student.

Once in a while, you cross paths with a person who can change a life. Freshman year of high school is hard. Being a teenage girl is hard. Add that to some anxiety and throw in a dash of social media, and life can be hard when you are 14. Last year, my daughter’s school counselor literally changed her life. She went from not wanting to get out of bed and go to school, to her sophomore year thriving. He checks on her daily and attended her varsity softball games on his own time last year just so she could see a safe face. It became a safe place for her when she needed a moment. He has and continues to go out of his way just to make sure she is ok. I know his job is to be there and help, but he has done more than I could ever repay him for. There are truly some special people in the world, and I am thankful we were able to meet one.
