Dear parents/ guardians, students, and community members:

My name is De’Zha Cushman and I am your new Mental Health and Wellness Facilitator.

My duties as part of the Henry County Public School’s Strategic Plan is to advance staff and student health, wellness, and support structures in schools. This includes:
