Welcome Class of 2023!
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.
