We’re writing on behalf of a very good guidance counselor named Mark Epstein, formerly of St. John’s High School on Johns Island. Mr. Epstein recently retired from West Ashley High School after 27 years in the Charleston County school system.

Mr. Epstein was a good role model for high school students. He influenced them to be focused and let them know that education is the key. If a problem arose that the student could not handle, Mr. Epstein was there for each and every one of them. He went out of his way to make sure things worked out for the students.

We need more guidance counselors like him in our schools.

We wish him the best on his retirement, and thank him for his hard work and willingness to listen and lead. May God bless him always.
