• Hello! My name is Candace Blackwood, and I am the counselor here at Mount Olive Intermediate School. I am a military spouse and a Phenix City native so it feels great to have the opportunity to be stationed at Ft. Benning. I am married to my husband, Shawn, and we have a daughter, Ellana. I received my B.A. in Psychology from Auburn University (War Eagle) and my M.S. in Community Counseling from Troy University. I have worked in the mental health and social services field, specifically serving children and families, for over 15 years. I truly love what I do and look forward to working with you all this school year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at (334) 468-5002 or blackwoodc@russellcsd.net.
