My name is Morgan Blancas and I am excited to serve the students and families of LCHS as the College & Career Counselor.

 

I have a business degree from Baylor University (Sic 'Em!) and a Masters Degree in School Counseling from Texas A&M (Gig 'Em!).

 

My family and I recently moved to the area and I am looking forward to being a Lion! My husband, Josh, works for ExxonMobil and we have two young children - Beau (2 years old) and Briggs (8 month old) who are eager to cheer on the Lake Creek Lions!

I am looking forward to working with every student to help map out their post-secondary plans.

Tips for Letters of Recommendation:

1. Each school has their own way of submitting LORs. It is the student's responsibility to find out how! Many schools ask for the email addresses of the people you will be requesting letters from. Then, the institution will email each person and give them a link or portal to access and upload the LOR. Some schools allow the new student to upload a LOR directly to their application portal. Others prefer a LOR to be mailed directly to the institution. Please provide all of this information to the person you have asked to write the LOR.

2. It is the student's responsibility to know the deadlines!  Teachers and counselors need 10 school days notice. Do not wait until the last minute and expect someone to write a LOR in a moment's notice! They can say NO! Your lack of planning is not our emergency!
