Ryan Smith

I have been a proud member of the Morton East counseling department since 2008 and am excited to serve as a College and Career Counselor for our Morton East students and families. There are many important decisions students face during their high school career that will directly affect their future educational and career opportunities, so I take my role of helping students and families navigate the college and career planning process very seriously. I truly enjoy working with students to meet their post-secondary goals.
