Bethel Bible Village Hosts Hamilton County Counselor And Social Workers Luncheon

Monday, February 25, 2013

Bethel Bible Village will host its sixth annual Hamilton County Counselor and Social Workers Luncheon on the Bethel campus this Thursday at noon.  Bethel will honor the more than 100 school counselors and social workers in Hamilton County Schools. In addition, Bethel will present their School Counselors and Social Workers of the Year Awards at this luncheon.


The school counselors and social workers reach 42,000 students through the Hamilton County school system.  These employees work on the front lines with teachers, students, and their families and provide counseling, pupil services and mentoring services.


“School Counselors and Social Workers provide critical care for Hamilton County students,” said Chuck Baker Executive Director.  “Bethel is proud to honor these leaders who care for our children.”


The luncheon’s featured speaker will be Dr. Stephen D. Livesay from Bryan College in Dayton, TN. Dr. Livesay came to Bryan College in February 2003 and is its 7th President. Under his leadership, the college is well on its way to achieving the goals of its strategic plan for the year 2020.  


Bethel Bible Village partners with Hamilton County Department of Education supporting the efforts of the school system and believes the school counselors and social workers are key personnel at each of the schools.  These critical staff members work closely with students and parents to help bring resolution to issues that cannot be handled in the classroom. 

For the last 59 years, Bethel Bible Village has provided safe, nurturing and Christ-centered homes for children of families in crisis.  By God's grace and through the generous support of many friends, Bethel continues to build Christ-centered lives one child at a time.
