Student:  Josh Carrico

Program Entry Year:  Fall 2017

Academic Background:  Western Carolina University

Why APP:  A couple reasons why I came to Boone are I love the mountains, I completed my undergrad at Western Carolina and couldn't get enough of the scenery here, plus I have App alum in my family who informed me of the great programs here.

Why School Counseling:  I've always had a desire to work in the school system, enjoy helping others, and I knew PSC was right for me after interning
at a K-8 school where I thrived working with the students there.
