• Melissa Morgan, School Counselor (P-Z)     

    I joined the Petal High School faculty as an intern in August 1997. Upon completion of my internship, I was hired as the Freshmen and Sophomore Counselor and AP Coordinator at PHS. I currently serve as the counselor for students whose last names start with P-Z. 
    I graduated from Richton High School and continued my education at Jones County Junior College. After spending two years at Jones, I transferred to the University of Southern Mississippi where I received a Bachelors of Science Degree in Social and Rehabilitation Services. I then went on to earn a Masters of Education in Counseling and Personnel Services at Southern Miss.  I am a past President of the Pine Belt Counseling Association and past secretary of the Mississippi Counseling Association. I have received over 150 hours of crisis response training from the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA).  In October 2001, I was one of the many crisis responders to New York City following the World Trade Center attacks.
    I have one daughter, Addison, who will forever be my 10-year-old shining light and a Petal Panther. I attend Petal Harvey Baptist Church.
