Please support mental health education.

Kristin Erin Buckner was a native of Sylva, NC, a graduate of Appalachian State University with a B.S. in Psychology and a graduate of Western Carolina University with a Masters of Arts in Education (M.A. Ed) in School Counseling. 

In addition to being a mother to three, she worked to become certified as a licensed professional counselor. Kristin worked as a School Counselor, a Behavioral Health Counselor, and a Behavioral Specialist. Additionally Kristin pursued her artistic passion by teaching and choreographing dance, particularly tap, for many young students in Western North Carolina. A talented vocalist, she shared her talents often in church services, weddings, and other civic events. 

Her family’s wish is that this scholarship gift be utilized by an individual who has a deep interest in providing counseling for those who suffer with mental or emotional difficulties.
