Q&A with Ms. Veronica Davis
A counselor at LQHS for 15 years, Ms. Davis has started a new chapter in her career at Amistad High
Question: What was your position at La Quinta High, and how many years did you work here?
Veronica Davis: I was a counselor at LQHS for 15 years.
Q: What was your biggest takeaway from working at La Quinta High?
VD: The students and staff at LQHS have a lot of spirit. Also, there are many opportunities for students to get connected to different programs to help foster preparation for college and career readiness.
Q: How would you describe your experience at the school?
VD: I have really enjoyed my time at LQHS. I learned many things from both the students and the staff.
Q: What are some of the best moments you’ve had here?
However, this year our seniors were recognized for having the highest percentage of students in the district to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and they were also top 10 in the state. As winners of the FAFSA challenge in the district, they received $3,000 for their class. The FAFSA is necessary for any student continuing education after high school.
Q: What’s next for you?
VD: As happy as I have been at LQHS, I decided that I was ready for a change and will be a counselor at Amistad High School starting next school year.
