    Courtney McArthur - School Counselor
    About Me
    My name is Courtney McArthur and I am your School Counselor.  
    I am from Hattiesburg, MS and went to High School in Columbia, MS. 
    I have been in the Petal School district for five years now. I started my time in Petal as a School Counseling Intern with Petal Elementary School and then right here at Petal Middle School. After that year of interning,  I went on to be the School Counselor at Petal Primary School for two years. In 2017, I moved from Petal Primary School to Petal Middle School. I have loved every minute of my time in the Petal School District. There is truly no other place like it. I am looking forward to all the years to come as a Petal Panther! 
    My Education
    I received my Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies at the University of Southern Mississippi. I will always be a Golden Eagle at heart! Southern Miss to the Top!  After working several years in Hattiesburg, I decided to move on to Graduate School and pursue a Counseling Degree. I moved to Lynchburg, VA where I received my Masters of Education in School Counseling from Liberty University.
    I am so excited to begin another year here at Petal Middle School and look forward to working with our students, teachers, parents and community members to ensure a positive and successful year!
