Superintendent Danny Adkins announces Leslie DeRossett-Fannin is Floyd County Schools’ new District Wide Guidance Counselor.  


Adkins comments, “We’re happy to have Leslie serve in this role for our district. She will focus on supporting students through programs like bullying prevention, suicide awareness, behavior interventions, and college and career exploration. She is a liaison for us with local, state, and federal agencies dealing with mental health so that we help remove academic, social and emotional barriers for our students.”


Leslie Fannin has worked in Floyd County Schools for twenty-six years, serving sixteen as an administrator in the role of guidance counselor. Leslie is a Prestonsburg High School and Morehead State University graduate, working at Allen Elementary, Prestonsburg Elementary and May Valley Elementary. She has served in many roles including Gifted and Talented (TAG) school coordinator, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) coordinator and cheer coach.


Fannin comments, “I’m excited to have the opportunity to focus on programs to help kids with some of the issues they may face. We’re giving our students tools that will equip them for now and for the rest of their lives. Working through situations, seeking help when you need it and looking to the future are part of having balanced lives. Our district wants all kids to be ready for life and this new role will allow me to help with those areas.”


Superintendent Adkins concluded, “Leslie’s enthusiasm for what this role will help her do for kids is contagious and we’re looking forward to seeing the innovative ways she will help kids. The board team and I look forward to working with Leslie and being part of the new opportunities she will bring for students.”
