A bit about Samantha: In addition to being a school counselor, I also run the middle school student ambassadors leadership group. Outside of school, I am a proud supporter of the Special Olympics and UNICEF’s Love Myself campaign ensuring children and teens live a safe and healthy life without fear of violence. In my spare time I like to spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and finding new and exciting activities. My favorite part of being a part of the Ledger family is how helpful and considerate everyone is. All staff members at SMSA are always willing to offer a helping hand or reach out to comfort those a part of our community. There is an overall great amount of love and compassion in the SMSA family!
