GETTING TO KNOW: Mrs. Kari Hovermale

LAKEVILLE, IN. – Each new school year brings changes in personnel – be it administration, teachers, or staff members.

Each year we take a look at the folks that have joined the Union-North United School Corporation family.

Today we visit with LaVille Elementary School Guidance Counselor Kari Hovermale.

Mrs. Hovermale attended Bremen High School and graduated in 2011.  While attending Bremen, she ran cross country, track and field, and was a swimmer.  She also participated in Fellowship of Christian Students, Science / Social Studies Academic teams, Spanish Club, Marching Band, Concert Band, Pep Band, Pit Band, Musical, and Winter Guard. 

Following her graduation from Bremen High School she went to Grace College for her undergraduate work. She studied Counseling and Criminal Justice in 2014. She graduated from Indiana University at South Bend in 2019 with a Masters in Counseling and Human Services with a focus in mental health.
