Meet the Counselors

Mr. Ben Seyfert

My name is Ben Seyfert and I will be serving as the school counselor for students with the last names of A-G. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Shippensburg before earning my Master in School Counseling (K-12) from Millersville in 2020. As a High School Counselor, I assist students with various academic, personal, and social-emotional needs.

I am very excited to be at Susquenita and working with the high school students!
