Van ISD names Giles Counseling Center


Courtesy photos Bill Giles was awarded a bronze plaque that will be on the entryway of the new counseling center at VHS. Superintendent Don Dunn and the Van ISD Board of Trustees presented the plaque.

The 2016-’17 school year at Van Independent School district will mark 57 years in education for Van High School counselor Bill Giles.

Giles began his career at Van ISD in 1960 teaching business subjects. In August 1966, Principal G. W. Blackburn recommended him to the position of counselor. From there, history was made at Van ISD.

In Blackburn’s words, “He (Giles) has been highly professional in his relationship with the students, teachers, and parents. He also has the respect and admiration of our entire student body.” Fifty years later, this still stands true.

This past June, the Van ISD Board of Trustees voted to name the counselling center at Van High School in honor of Giles, officially being named the Bill Giles Counseling Center.

The name of the center was revealed during a back to school convocation. Present during the naming ceremony was Giles and his family.
