Ms. Melissa Walsh

I am Melissa Walsh.  I am the Communities in Schools Site Director here at SCHS.  I am a native to Caldwell County.  I graduated from Hibriten High School in 2005.  Graduated from Appalachian State University with my Elementary Education degree.  I have worked at several schools in the county.  My goal for this year is to be a support person for all of our students here at South Caldwell.  In my opinion it takes a village to help raise and mold a child and I am proud to be a part of that village.
