4- I0 COMMUNITY I THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2014 ThE Qu00cY Post-Recji00,ter District beefs u,p high school counseling office KURTIS J. WOOD sports@qvpr com Quincy High School is bol- stering its counseling center heading into the upcoming school year. It was a long time coming, especially with the increased student population at QHS, said Chris Trevino, a high school counselor. Quincy was a small school when Trevino was a student in the late '90s. However, much like its mascot, the Jackrabbit, Quincy has seen an explosion in students. The student pop- ulation has nearly doubled in the years since Trevino grad- uated; however, the school continues to have only two counselors. Rod Luce, who retired this year after 14 years at QHS, counseled the junior and se- nior classes, while Trevino worked with the freshmen and sophomores. But it was just too many kids per counselor to keep up with demands; Trevino said. "The state continues to in- crease the expectations for graduation," said principal David Talley. "Now kids have to pass four tests to graduate and have 24 credits." OBITUARIES Alex Jose Vasquez Carrillo, 11, of Quincy passed away June 8, 2014. Alex was born on Dec. 24, 2002, to Febro- nio Vazquez and Mafia J. Carrillo. He was a fifth-grade stu- dent at Monument Elementa- ry School. Alex will be great- ly missed by all of his family and friends. Visitation is 4 p.m., Thurs- day, June 19, at Providence Funeral Services in Quincy. Services will be followed by the recital of the rosary at 6 p.m. Funeral Mass is 1 p.m., Friday, June 20, at St. Plus X Catholic Church in Quincy.

The move drew criticism from the public, and many residents opposing the idea showed up at a city council meeting. Instead, the city in October signed a two-year extension .to its contract with the fire district. At this time, the city pays $450,000 for fire services. That increases to $482,205 next year. The city's contribution makes up about 30 percent of the fire district's overall reve- nues, Fortier said. "When we put that money together, we are able to build this system," he said. The fire district, which covers 500 square miles, has seven career firefighters who staff the station on weekdays. The district also has about 25 volunteer firefighters, most of whom respond to weekend calls, Fortier said. So eight to 10 firefighters typically respond to a week- day call, he said. The study paid for by the city states that two full-time employees -- a chief and as- sistant chief -- would staff a fire station built on the north side of the tracks. A facility would cost at least $1.5 mil- lion, according to the study. The city will need to decide by the end of the year if it will sign a long-term agreement with the fire district, Hember- ry said. That would give the city time to determine its next steps. "We are in the process of trying to work out a long-term agreement," Hemberry said. "Hopefully, we will come to an agreement." Fortier said he would like to see the city and fire district in a long-term contract of 10 to 15 years. The district wants to grow with the city, he said. "We are so much stronger together than we will ever be apart," he said, 0% FOR UP TO 54 MONTHS WITH EQUAL PAYMENTS ON ALL CUB CADETS 1 HARRISON'S in for FREE DIAMONDS & I)Ebl(.N cleaning I I D st sE Quincy 4 Basin St NW, Ephrlta 754-48171 HarrisonsDiamonds.com InsideTangbes Salon I Visit us on [[['ij] QHS is bringing in two new faces and a facelift to the counseling center. It is all to benefit the students and meet the demands of the graduation requirements. The school district has a high percentage of low-in- come and high-poverty stu- dents, which adds to the amount of counseling needed at the high school, Trevino said. "It's exciting to get some more help in there," he said. "We will get more time to work with the kids." The two new counselors are Orion Royster and Eve Heine Arp. Royster is nation- ally board certified and was a counselor at an elementary school in Vancouver the last 14 years. Arp has been a high school counselor for the past seven years in Kenai, Alaska. The three counselors also will Work side by side With migrant graduation special- ists Alicia Sanchez and Arturo Guerrero, as well as adminis- trative assistant Kelli McKay. With the additional coun- selor, the high school will modify the size and layout of the counseling center. There will be access to the migrant specialists through the coun- seling center, as well as two new meeting rooms. Sanchez and Guerrero will share a room previously ac- cessed through the old choir room and a pair of storage closets in the old choir room will be converted into the meeting rooms. All three will have doorways added by the school's maintenance depart- ment. "It will be full service," Trevino said. .
