School Counseling 

Russ Fields
High School Counselor

As the school counselor at Southern I will be working hard to support the success of the students. I will be collaborating with Mr. Otto, Mrs. McNickle, teachers, staff, parents and the community to assist our students in meeting their maximum potential.  

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child this year. Please feel free to visit my teacher webpage for more information or contact me if you have any questions or concerns. My office is located in the high school.

General topics I am available to assist our students with:

  1. Personal problems
  2. Schedule creation and schedule changes
  3. The preparation and administration of state and national tests (Ohio Achievement Assessments [OAA], Ohio Graduation Tests [OGT], PSAT, PLAN, ACT, ASVAB, and SAT).
  4. Transcript requests and reviews
  5. The college admissions process, college testing, scholarships and financial aid information
  6. Exploring career plans and other post-high school options
