About the Counselors

Hello! My name is 

Mrs. Beckum

I am from Starkville, Mississippi.  I have a family and two pets with whom I love to spend my time.  I also love swimming, basketball, baseball, and drawing.  Besides that, I love to eat soul food with a slice of 7up pound cake on the side;)

I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree, Master of Science Degree, and Educational Specialist Degree from Mississippi State University.  I am working tremendously hard to finish my PhD in Instructional Systems and Workforce Development.  Recently, I added Educational Leadership with hopes of being done in December. 

Besides the goals I want to accomplish, I am the 7th and 8th grade professional school counselor at Columbus Middle School.  I work with students in all capacities.  I love making differences in other's lives.  

I have five years of counseling experience and three years in Special Education.  I have a passion for working with students.  The sky is the limit.  I'm a firm believer in they can do anything they set their minds to.  These students are our future, and nothing would make me happier than to see students who attended CMS succeed.

Go Falcons!
