Mr. GRIFFITH. Mr. Speaker, today I commend Regina Meredith, Salem
High School's counseling coordinator, who was recently named Counselor
of the Year by the Virginia Counselors Association.
Regina studied at Radford University, where she earned her bachelor's degree as well as two master's degrees. She began her career at Carroll County High School, where she taught English. Regina also worked in Hillsville, Roanoke, and Christiansburg as a special education teacher.
She began her counseling career in 2000 in Christiansburg, where she also taught English, prior to joining the staff at Salem High School in 2005. In 2012, Regina was named Salem High's teacher of the year, and in 2014 she was named the Roanoke Area Counseling Association's Member of the Year.
``Regina is an exemplary educator and her work ethic, her professionalism, her innovation and, most importantly, her love for and service to others are models for both students and her colleagues,'' said Salem High School principal Scott Habeeb in the Roanoke Times. ``Without a doubt, we meet the needs of Salem's young people more effectively as a result of Regina Meredith's influence on our school.'' I ask that my colleagues join me in recognizing Regina Meredith for her years of dedication to our nation's young people. I appreciate her hard work, and congratulate her for this tremendous accomplishment.
