Counselors Help Students
The main purpose of the Counseling Department is to help
students through school and to help them with all kinds of
problems whether it is a school problem, social problem,
personal problem or a problem at home.
This year the Counseling Department put on an Armed Forces
Day to which they invited representatives from each branch of
the armed services to tell Benson students what each has to offer
in the military.
The counselors also invited representatives from colleges to
talk about their college and to tell students about the course
offerings the colleges had to offer.
Mr. Richard Wilkes, counselor, continued a program from last
year called l'Classroom Guidance Counseling", In this program
the counselors go into the classroom and teach about classroom
communication, listening habits, self image, decision making
and special behavior.
Another program also started was parental workshops to
teach parents about the functions ofthe counseling program.
Counselors were a great asset to the students and they were
always willing to help them.

Secretaries Keep School Going
If it were not for the hard working ladies the students
know as secretaries, this school could not function.
A few of the things they do are keep track of atten-
dance, type the daily bulletin, type the absentee sheet,
give out excused slips, answer phones, keep track of stu-
dent transcripts, and probably hear more unusual excuses
in a year than even Mr. Benninghoff and Mr. Hennesy.
You can see they keep very busy.
Teacher problems, official business, some outside
school activities and all incoming phone calls go through
the Main Office which is headed by Mrs. Kathleen Harris.
She is helped by Mrs, Anne Barlow,
The other two offices are the Personnel Office run by
Mrs. Betty Jenkins and Mrs. LaVon Crofton and the Shop
and Academic Vice-principals Office run by Mrs. Maxine
Williams, Mrs, Bettye Hopp, and Mrs. Patricia Degerstedt.
lf ever you need to know something about the school,
look in on any ofthe secretaries in any of the offices. They
can tell you what you need to know!
