West Welcomes Ezell, Counselor

By Maylea Brown


Let's get to know a new staff member of the West High Trojans. Her name is Kelly Ezell. She is a guidance counselor for West. She was born and grew up in Morristown, TN. Ezell attended West High School and graduated in 1996. She and her husband, Scott, live in the Witt area now. Kelly has 2 sons which attend Lincoln and Witt Elementary.

Ezell has recently spent 20 years at Meadowview Middle, 15 of which she served as their school counselor. Kelly felt “God changing the direction of her life and giving the desire to work with and serve our community's older teens and young people.” She is now excited to be giving back to the school that gave her so much and invested her life as a teenager.

Ezell went to Carson Newman University to earn both of her undergraduate and Master’s degrees. Her favorite thing about West High is the sense of community and family in the counseling office and throughout the building. She stated, “everyone has treated me so kindly and has answered all my (numerous) questions without hesitation! And i'm LOVING working with the students. You guys are too much fun! :) “
