Kelsey Broadfield is the new career counselor for Tyrone Area High School.

Every two years Tyrone students say goodbye to their AmeriCorps college and career counselor and hello to a new member of the Tyrone High School guidance staff.

The new Career and College Counselor is Ms. Kelsey Broadfield. She comes to Tyrone from Bennington College in Vermont and is excited to help students with all their college and career plans.

“My job is to help all Tyrone students with their post-secondary plans. I am here just as much for students going into the workforce or military as I am for college-bound students,” said Broadfield.

“I am very excited to become involved with the Tyrone community and am happy to help out in any way possible.”
