High School Counselor takes job in Derby


Sydney LaKous, Assistant Editor

After being the junior/senior counselor at Rose Hill High School for five years, Casey Tarrant has decided to move to the Derby district to be closer to her family. She will be a counselor at Derby Middle School.

“It will be nice to have the same days off of school (as my kids),” Tarrant said. “I will be able to work in the building that my daughters will be attending. I am excited to be able to be there for my daughters. Middle school is such a hard time.”

Although Tarrant’s time at RHHS is coming to an end, she had a great experience here. Her favorite part of being a Rocket was the students. 

“They make my job fun! I love being a part of big life changes for students – scholarships, college admissions, new jobs,” said Tarrant. 

Deciding to go to another district took a lot of thinking for Tarrant. She said it was one of the hardest decisions she has had to make in a long time, but is excited for a change. 

“It all comes down to family,” said Tarrant.
