Hello, my name is Bryette Sipes, this is my second year as a school counselor and my fourth year working at Vista Grande High School. I was born and raised right here in Casa Grande, Arizona. After graduating high school, I attended Central Arizona College and then transferred to the University of Arizona. I graduated from UofA with my Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Leadership and Communications. I then came back to my hometown and was a GEAR UP coordinator (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) for 2 years before becoming a school counselor. I am currently working on my Masters degree. When I’m not doing homework, I love cooking, eating, exercising, shopping and spending time with my family. I love the opportunity to serve students in my hometown, I understand the struggles and challenges students face in this rural community.
