POINT PLEASANT — Point Pleasant Primary School honored its counselor, Kim Browning, on Monday morning.
Last week was school counselor week, but the celebration keeps on going.
Browning said he has worked in the Mason County School system for 19 years as a school counselor. Browning said one of his primary jobs is to help educate the students.
He said he teaches students how to get along with others and if they are having trouble, teaches them what to do about it. He teaches students about bullying on the playground and in the classroom.
Browning said sometimes the students are overcome with grief from something at home, and he teaches them how to cope. They learn about the things they can change and how to cope with the things they cannot change.
On Monday morning, the staff and students had a parade to show their appreciation for Browning. It was a surprise to him. After the parade, there was a short assembly where the students sang songs while Browning played the guitar.
Mason County Board of Education President Jared Billings presented Browning with a proclamation stating that Feb. 10, 2020 was Mr. Browning day at PPPS.
“We have great students and staff,” Browning said. “It’s a great place to be.”
