“Angela Borchardt and Nadalee Daves are our two outstanding counselors at Krum High School.  They make a great team in helping students in crisis.  Our students feel comfortable in talking with them and seeking needed guidance.  January and February are extremely busy times for the counselors of any high school.  However, this year's situation placed even more pressure on the counselors to wear additional hats under a very tight timeline.  They made it all work and we are proud of them.”
