Mrs. Erica Hawes

My name is Erica Hawes and I am the School Counselor for students in grades 10th-12th, whose last name starts with M-Z. This is my fifth year at South Caldwell High School and I am excited to be here! I attended Appalachian State University for both my undergraduate and graduate studies, where I received a Bachelors of Science (B.S.) degree in Child Psychology and a Masters of Art (M.A.) degree in Professional School Counseling. I also have my Advanced degree in Professional School Counseling and am a National Certified Counselor.

My goal is to help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development. High school is the final transition into adulthood and I aim to assist students during this time in exploring their options for the future.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call.
