Churchill County School District highlights

The CCHS Mentor Program is finishing up its second year and is on a roll. The mentors just finished their Peer Mentoring and Mental Health First Aid certifications. These students spent nearly every Tuesday morning at CCMS helping students and teachers and working on their certifications Thursday in class. These programs would not have been possible without the gracious teaching from the mental health experts Brittany Frew and Macie Anderson from the local community mental health program and service, New Frontier. Students in the CCHS mentor program are now more prepared and knowledgeable to help those around them socially and in times of mental health crises. “I am so very proud of the work and effort these students have put forth to better help those around them as well as themselves. This group's work has paved the way for many more opportunities for positive and everlasting peer connections at the high school and middle school levels for now and for the future,” said CCHS Mentor Program advisor Heather Benjamin.
