Guidance Counselor: Mrs. Kendra Quinlan Guidance Secretary: Ms. Brenda Simmons

Hello! I'm Kendra Quinlan and I am the High School Counselor serving grades 9-12. I am a native of the North Country and a graduate of both Lisbon Central and St. Lawrence University. I hold a Masters Degree in School Counseling and also have my license in School Administration. I was an Elementary and Middle School Counselor in Ohio for 4 years, and also previously worked as a BOCES K-12 School Counselor in multiple districts before coming to HCS.

I have 3 awesome children who keep me very busy. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, and being outdoors; especially on the water. I love my supportive role as a resource for students and I hope to work closely with each of them to positively impact their current and future success. I value an open-door policy and welcome drop-in visits from students, staff, and parents anytime.
