    Marques Blanford MA, SCL, LLPC

    I am a graduate of Wayne State University and also a graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy.  I am a professional school counselor who is the mental health expert for our building.  I've been a counselor for almost a decade and I've been in education for a  decade and a half.   I am a proud DPSCD alumni, representing Garvey academy, and the big N.O., and my passion for youth is what drives me every single day.  One of the tenets I live by is pride in my community, and a quote that has always reminded me of that is, Up Up you mighty race, you can accomplish what you will.
