Hundreds of students have passed through Dan Guthrie’s office over the last 29 years. They’ve visited the Mount Vernon High School guidance counselor for numerous reasons, positive and painful. As the faces came and went, Guthrie said he always hoped that the work he did had a positive impact on Mount Vernon students.
“I think that’s what anyone in a helping profession hopes for,” he said. “You hope you are making a difference and helping people when they need it most.”
