Stephanie Young, Counselor

Welcome to Ms. Young's Counselor Page!


I am privileged to serve as the School Counselor at the Desoto County Alternative Center. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi University for Women in Speech-Language Pathology in 1995. I am a 1997 graduate of Mississippi State University where I obtained my Master of Science degree in Counselor Education. I am originally from Grenada, MS and a 1991 graduate of Grenada High School.

I have 20 years of experience in education, with 18 years as a school counselor. I have served as a counselor in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Florida at all grade levels (pre K-12). I obtained my National Certified Counselor and National Certified School Counselor credentials in 2013.

I am fortunate to work at DCAC. I am able to spend my career doing what I love…helping children reach their full potential. I love being part of the DCAC family.
