Jan 26, 2024 | News

In McDowell County, Marvin Lockett, ESMH Case Manager at Southern Highlands CMHC serves both Welch Elementary School and Kimball Elementary School. Marvin has built an incredible rapport with the students, their families, teachers, and Leadership Teams at both schools. He goes above and beyond when it comes to communicating with families regarding their child’s mental health. By doing so, Marvin knows the child’s detailed story and adjusts services to meet their individual needs. He works hard to make connections and referrals between the Tier 2 groups and Tier 3 individual services.

Marvin has become an integral part of the staff at Kimball Elementary. They include him any time teachers and other school staff are recognized or celebrated; just as if he is part of the family!

Each time his supervisor visits a school, the principals rave about his commitment to their students. Mr. Brad Hardy, Principal, says, “Marvin is a wonderful person and a great help to us here at the school. I have nothing but good things to say about that man.”

We are thrilled to have such a dedicated member on our ESMH team!
