Welcome to NIHS Guidance!


    Cheree D. Cardwell

    Welcome to the NIHS Guidance Department.  My name is Mrs. Cardwell, and  I am the counselor for all Sophomores and Freshmen with last name A-L. 

    My  Mission
    My mission as a NIHS counselor is to help all students reach their fullest potential by being part of a comprehensive school counseling program to facilitate their academic, career, social, and emotional development. 
    About Me
    It feels good to be home!  I am a Raider from way back. I graduated from NIHS in 1989. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Human Services from Gardner-Webb University, and my Master's Degree in School Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University.  
    I have been married to my husband Mark for 16 years, and we have a daughter in 7th grade, and twin boys in 4th grade.  With 3 kids, we stay busy running them to dance and ball practices.
    I enjoy sports, shopping, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends, and in my spare time, I teach some fitness classes. I look  forward to getting to know the students and families of NIHS.
