The 2019-2020 Escambia County Middle School Peer Helpers have been named. They were selected based on teacher recommendations, a screening process by the sponsors, and an interview. To be selected as a Peer Helper is an honor.
ECMS Peer Helpers empower their peers to stand-up against substance abuse and other issues that may interfere with their education. ECMS Peer Helpers are coordinated by Cordia Coleman Lee, ECMS seventh- and eighth-grade counselor, and sponsored by the Escambia County Children’s Policy Council.
