We can’t wait to pick right back up where we left off last week. It is our pleasure to introduce four more counselors who will spend their very first summer working in the heart of a wooded mountain.
Parker Hodges: Parker has spent the past year amidst sunshine and palm trees at Florida State University where she is studying accounting. After completing two NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) courses, Parker has decided to share her love of the outdoors with the girls at Rockbrook. Parker is also extremely proud to say that she is…drum roll…a triplet! Parker prides herself on leading by example and we lucky to have her join our staff this summer!
Leslie Hylton: Leslie will be joining us from Brevard College. A mathematics major and the president of the math club, Leslie loves using her mastery of this subject to tutor local middle and high schoolers. She hopes to one day become a high school math teacher. Leslie loves her cat Whiskers and can tell you a thing or two about choosing the best outfit for your stuffed animal from her previous experience working at Build-a-Bear Workshop. We can BEARly hide our excitement for Leslie’s arrival.
Meggie Lasher: Meggie, a native of Weaverville, NC, will be a wonderful addition to our staff this summer. Meggie is contemplating a future in Library Science and loves to read. A huge proponent of snail mail and the great outdoors, Meggie is no stranger to summer camp. She spent seven years of her childhood attending girl scout camp and looks forward to working in a positive, all-female environment once again. You may find Meggie bopping around the Rockbrook Readers this summer.
Kate Lasher: Surprise! We also welcome Meggie’s twin sister Kate to Rockbrook! Upon graduation, Kate aspires to work as a teacher. She loves cooking, hiking, and Yoga. Kate also speaks Spanish and can converse in basic French. Hola! Kate describes the perfect counselor as someone who can play the role of “a friend, mother, protector, teacher, guide, nurse, confidant, and a listening ear- just to name a few.” Welcome aboard Kate!
