I am originally from a small town in Eastern North Carolina called Pink Hill. After high school, I went to Meredith College where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with a 9-12 teaching licensure. I taught all levels of math at Leesville Road High School for four years, while working towards my counseling degree. I graduated from Salem College with my counseling degree and moved to Needham B.

I am so happy to be at Louisburg High School where I can serve not only the students with the last names K-Z, but all students in our community.

Mr. Jared Mathewson, Career and College Advisor

 I am the Career and College Advisor here at LHS. Before starting this position, I obtained a BS in Genetics and a BS in History from NC State. As a member of the College Advising Corp, my desire is for every student to have a plan in place when the graduate highschool so that they can be happy and financially support themselves. This includes trade schools, community colleges, universities, and even just entering the workforce; what is most important is that our students at LHS are prepared for whatever path fits them. My position here is a two year rotation after which plan to pursue a Dual Masters program in Public Health and Bioethics in hopes that I can continue to serve under-represented communities.
