Bethel Bible Village Honors Hamilton County Counselors And Social Workers

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Bethel Bible Village will host its seventh annual Hamilton County Counselor and Social Workers Luncheon on the Bethel campus Friday, February 28 at noon.  Bethel will honor the more than 100 school counselors and social workers in the Hamilton County Schools.

 

The school counselors and social workers reach roughly 42,000 students through the Hamilton County school system.

  These employees work on the front lines with teachers, students, and their families providing 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 Mr. Clay Hunnicutt, Executive Vice President of Programming for Clear Channel Media & Entertainment.  Mr. Hunnicutt oversees programming for some of the largest radio markets in the country including New York, L.A., Chicago, Houston, Washington D.C./Baltimore, and San Diego. He began his career in Chattanooga at WUSY as an unpaid intern, moving through the ranks becoming the Program Director of the nine-time CMA Radio Station of the Year – WUSY-FM. He also held the positions of Director of Programming for Clear Channel in Nashville and Atlanta, Vice President of Programming for the Southeast markets and most recently the Senior Vice President of Programming for the Eastern Region. He is a strong supporter of children and the work done here at Bethel Bible Village.

 

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.
