Rita Richardson

Hello Everyone,

I am Rita Richardson, the School Counselor for students with last names in alphabets F - Ma. Transitioning to New Kent High School has been both pleasant and inspiring thanks to the cooperative and supportive spirit of the faculty and staff. New Kent High School is also reminiscent of my high school alma mater, Amelia County High School.

After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1985 and 1987, I explored various student personnel services careers including financial aid, admissions, and of course, school counseling. Most recently, I was a School Counselor/Lead School Counselor for over 20 years with Richmond City Public Schools.

I am so excited to work with the students and parents of New Kent High School again this year. And, I am committed to providing the assistance and resources students need to successfully transition from high school to post-secondary experiences while becoming responsible and thriving global citizens.

In my leisure I enjoy movies, Broadway plays, traveling, playing board games and spending quality time with family and friends. I am proud to be a member of the School Counseling Team, and I look forward to serving the students and parents of New Kent High School! Please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] or (804) 966-9692. Go Trojans! Have a great year!
