West Windsor, N.J. – Heidi (Summers) Musick ’09 (A.A., Liberal Arts) works just a stone’s throw from Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) West Windsor campus, her first alma mater, but has returned to the county’s educational complex as a professional, fully dedicated to counseling junior and senior high school students in times of need.
Musick is a Student Assistance Counselor (SAC) for the Mercer County Special Services School District, Jr. Sr. High School (MHS). Now nearing the end of her second school year, she is passionate about her work.
“I love working at MHS, surrounded by an amazing staff,” Musick said. “I see students for individual and group counseling. I also assist in student problem solving, substance abuse counseling, and prevention. I have the opportunity to make a difference in young people’s lives at critical times.”
When Musick chose to attend to attend MCCC after graduating from Nottingham High School in 2007, she had some very good reasons. She was an NJ STARS scholar, which provided a significant scholarship, and as a soccer player during her years at Nottingham, she was eager to play for Mercer’s women's soccer team.
