Cargill comes out of retirement to be a counselor at Seven Bridges

ORANGE PARK – Kathleen M. Cargill, M.Ed., has joined the volunteer staff of Seven Bridges School as School Counselor, according to Nancy W. Alberts, M.Ed., President and Director;

“We’ve recognized the need for nonacademic support and guidance,” Alberts said. “If we can take care of those needs concurrently, the academics will fall into place. The support and understanding children received at school from our counselors is designed to help students stay on track when problems they have threaten to derail their education.

“I believe school counselors make significant contributions to the overall well‐being of students and their success. They have unique qualifications and skills that allow them to address students’ academic achievement, career development and social and emotional needs.”

Cargill, graduated from Florida Atlantic University, where she earned a master’s degree in education in School Guidance and Counseling. She will be providing individual as well as group counseling at Seven Bridges School.

Previously Ms. Cargill worked as a school counselor at Oakland Park Elementary in Ft. Lauderdale, Fleming Island Elementary, at Orange Park Elementary School, from where she retired in 2019.

She came out of retirement to work with the students of Seven Bridges School.

“As a School counselor at Seven Bridges School my job is to help children deal with the problems and issues they have, so they be successful in school,” Cargill said.

Seven Bridges is a unique-concept private school of students in grades K through 12.
