ELKVIEW, W.Va. (AP) - A Kanawha County school counselor was recognized for his work at a recent White House function.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/1SCrQjf) 37-year-old Todd Roatsey and other state representatives for the National Counselor of the Year Award attended a ceremony Jan. 28, where they met First Lady Michelle Obama, among others.

Roatsey was named the Elementary School Counselor of the Year by the West Virginia School Counselor Association. The organization nominated him, and he was approved, as the state’s national counselor representative.

Jill Cook, assistant director of the American School Counselor Association, which presented the national award to Katherine Pastor at Arizona’s Flagstaff High School, says Roatsey was among representatives from 47 states and the District of Columbia.

Roatsey works as a developmental school guidance counselor at Pinch Elementary.
