My name is Linda D. Thomas and this is my 5th year as a Career Specialist with Lee County School District.  I am a graduate of Limestone College with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration/Management and a minor in Psychology. 

I enjoy counseling young teens about possible college choices and career paths. I believe that by providing students with knowledge and experience through career exploration, students can make better informed decisions about possible career choices after high school.

 My name is Corey Thompson, I am a native of Beaufort, SC. I have over 10 years of experience working in the school system in various capacities. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from the mighty Allen University. As my role evolved I went back to school and completed my Master degree, from Webster University. I am very passionate about my family, and serving my community and making a difference in the lives of students. My hope is to continuously broaden my horizon within this field; to assist students through the process of high school and help them become college and career ready.
