Hillcrest High’s Eric Murdock Named School Counseling Educator of the Year

Advocate, example, amazing – these are just a few of the words parents, coworkers and students use to describe the abilities of Eric Murdock, a counselor at Hillcrest High and Entrada.

Murdock has made such a difference in the lives of his students that the Utah Association of Career and Technical Educators’ Guidance Division has chosen him as the School Counseling Educator of the Year.

Murdock works tirelessly with all students and their families to forge individualized paths to graduation and help his students achieve their dreams. “I’ve never met a Counselor who cares more or gives more than Eric Murdock,” wrote CTE Coordinator Lesli Covington-Taft on a Facebook post announcing Murdock’s award. “He works tirelessly well into the evening most days to make certain he has given each one of his students the best support and advice available. I’m proud to call him my friend and co-worker.”

He serves on CSD’s Credit Recovery Committee, which identifies students who are at risk for not graduating and helps them make up lost credits, and he helps students obtain scholarships to attend schools they could not otherwise.
