Sterling School counselor Dr. Mary Tchouros was named the Palmetto State School Counselor Association’s 2023 South Carolina School Counselor of the Year.
As an ASCA Certified counselor, Dr. Tchouros has been an advocate for her school and the entire counseling profession. For more than 10 years, “Dr. T.” has represented school counseling with expertise and dedication.
