    Ms. Blake Anderson

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am excited to be joining the Battleground family as the new school counselor. This will be my first year as a school counselor. I attended Lincoln County Schools and am so happy to be able to give back to my community as an educator. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Public Health and am continuing my education at UNCC earning my Master’s in School Counseling. When I’m not at school I enjoy spending time with my Corgi, Ellie. I also run 5ks, 10ks, and half marathons in my free time. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out.
