Mental Health Services

Hello!! My name is Kenyetta Evans and I will be serving as the Mental Health Coordinator for the Marengo County School District. Let me tell you all a bit about myself. I am a 1998 graduate of SWHS. After High School, I obtained my B.S. in Sociology/minor in Psychology (2003), and my M.S. in Counseling and Psychology in 2009 from the University of West Alabama. I have over 17 years of experience in the mental health arena starting from a case manager all the way up to an Executive Director of a Substance Abuse facility.
This will also be my fourth year serving in this capacity. I am here to work with and educate the scholars, parents, community, and staff at each school so that our scholars have the best possible outcome. I travel to each school during the week and if you would like to talk to me my schedule is as follows
(07:15 am to 03:15 pm).

  • Monday/Thursday: Marengo High,
  • Tuesday: Amelia Love, 
  • Wednesday/Friday: Sweet Water High

Just know that my door is always open and I am here for any and everyone. I can be reached by email at any time. Feel free to reach out to me at any time.
