Erin Replogle

Freshman Counselor

(9th Grade)

Welcome Class of 2023!

Hello!

My name is Erin Replogle. This is my 5th year at WCHS as the school counselor for 9th grade students. I spent 5 years as an elementary school counselor in White County at BonDeCroft Elementary and Cassville Elementary schools. My role as a school counselor is to assist students with their academic, career, and social/emotional needs to help ensure everyone has a successful school year.


Focus on Freshmen

  • Your FRESHMAN year is a time for NEW BEGINNINGS!
  • This is an opportunity for you to experience and accomplish many things.
  • Develop and maintain new friendships.
  • Get involved: join a new club or sport.
  • Start and maintain a high GPA, because all grades count!
  • It's never too early to start planning for life after high school.
