Meet the Guidance Counselor

Lesher-optHello. My name is Curt Lesher. I am currently the Guidance Counselor at St. Peter’s High School and Junior High. My educational history includes degrees from Grove City College and Slippery Rock State University, along with graduate degrees from Wright State University and Ashland Theological Seminary: Mental Health Counseling, School Counseling, and Pastoral Psychology and Counseling.

I taught math for six years at New Carlisle Schools in Springfield, Ohio. I was the 9-12 Guidance Counselor at Ontario Local Schools for fifteen years. I was the 9-12 Guidance Counselor at Wooster City Schools for the past fifteen years before just retiring in May, 2015.

I’ve been married to Jane for 31 years. We have four children: Andrew (28) currently a senior at Ohio University majoring in Civil Engineering; Jordan (26) a graduate from Miami of Ohio University in BioChemistry and currently working in medical sales; Connor (23) a graduate from The Ohio State University in BioChemistry and currently applying to Veterinarian Schools; and his twin sister, Anna, graduate from University of South Alabama and golfing on one of the women’s pro golf tours.

My door is always open to work with students and parents as they prepare for college/career. I can be reached by email at: [email protected] or via phone: 419-524-2572. I am excited to be working at St. Peter’s High School and Junior High and getting to know the St. Peter’s community.
