Greetings and welcome to Breckenridge High School! 

My name is Chris Held, and I am the school counselor at Breckenridge High School. This is my first year at Breckenridge, as well as my first year as a school counselor. My primary goal at BHS is to serve as an advocate for our students, support their academic, career, and personal/social needs in addition to supporting a positive and welcoming school atmosphere. 

Originally from Hankinson, ND, I graduated from Hankinson High School in 2009. I then attended North Dakota State University where I received a bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. Upon graduation I chose to pursue school counseling and went on to receive my Master's of Education in K-12 School Counseling from North Dakota State University in 2016. Throughout my academic and professional experiences I have worked as a server, research assistant, research analyst, college tour guide, collegiate admissions representative, and as a graduate research assistant in alcohol and other drug abuse prevention. 

When I am not at school I enjoy stand-up comedy, movies staring Tina Fey, cooking chili, going for walks with my dog Howie, and trying to memorize all of the words to the Hamilton soundtrack.
