Greetings! My name is Mrs. McGarvey, and I am the counselor for last names A-B and the Bulldog Scholars here at New Albany High School. I have been able to call this building my professional home for the last 17 years now. I have seen many changes in this building in that time, and I am proud to be a part of the traditions at the oldest high school in the state of Indiana. Before I began to counsel here, I was a Bulldog myself. I played volleyball and was involved in the Theater program, and now my children are becoming involved in the latter, as well. For so many reasons, I am continuing to work to make NAHS a better place to learn and grow.
