MORRIS – On Monday, parents urged members of the Morris Area School Board to add more counseling support in the district, even if it meant making other potentially painful budget cuts.


Morris Area currently has one counselor, Tammy Roth, serving the approximately 1,000 students in the elementary and high schools.

Peg Rinkenberger, a social studies teacher at MAHS, told the board that counselors offer needed support for students.
