Mary Keezee

Welcome to the La Vega Junior High School Counseling Department Thank you for exploring this part of our website. I hope you find interesting and useful information I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Paul Quinn College and Master's Degree from Prairie View A & M University. I have a genuine interest in the well being of our students and welcome your comments whenever you feel there is a need. Students generally see a guidance counselor for needs in the areas of academics, personal issues, social issues, and careers. I also facilitate GT testing, CBE testing, Personal Graduation Plans (PGP's), Upward Bound Program and our annual Career Day. Individual counseling and some small group counseling are also available. Parents are also welcome to come in or call for assistance or advice.
