Marion K. Story
A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history. Mahatma Gandhi
I am that small determined spirit Marion K. Story, inspired by my unwavering devotion to empower all students to reach their fullest potential academically and socially. I currently serve as 9th grade counselor of the newly consolidated Cleveland Central High School (Go Wolves!) I have been in the educational arena for 17 years. I am a proud graduate of East Side High School (Forever TROJAN.) I completed my undergraduate degree at Mississippi Valley State University in Political Science. However, after completing my undergrad degree, I realized that I could greater serve through the educational system. So I enrolled into the counseling program at Delta State University and earned my Masters in Community Counseling. Upon completion, I worked with Region 6 Mental Health in the Adolescent Offenders Program. While visiting one of my clients at school, his teacher stated “I believe you can reach many “Michaels” by becoming a teacher. So I decided to go from counselor to teacher and still use my counseling skills. However, I felt limited, and decided that becoming a school counselor would provide me the opportunity to work with more students. It has been one of the greatest decisions of my life. Before the consolidation within the district, and prior to coming to East Side High School, I served as counselor of West Tallahatchie H.S. I also taught 1st/2nd grade for 2 years in Houston Independent School District.
During football season, I can be found in the stands supporting the Mighty Wolves on a Friday to MVSU on Saturday to Dallas Cowboys on any given NFL night. I enjoy reading, watching action movies, and traveling with my family.
I am the mother of three sons and Gigi to three awesome granddaughters Chloe Khristina, Chelsea Lillian Kinshasa and Kadence Kiari.
