Missy Reynolds is a new school nurse at Fort Scott High School, since the end of August 2020.
She has been a district nurse substitute over the past several years and prior to that worked at Nevada Medical Clinic.
Reynolds graduated from FSHS in 1989, then graduated from Fort Scott Community College in 2008 with an associate of applied science degree in nursing.
She was born and raised in Fort Scott.
She has been married to Mike Reynolds for 26 years and has three children. Garrett, Kennede, and Kerigan. Kerigan is currently a sophomore at FSHS.
Reynold became a nurse to help people.
“I wanted to be a nurse to be able to help people,” she said. “I was busy raising my children but the opportunity came up for me to go back to college later in life so I was a non-traditional student.”
“The high school has not had a full-time nurse in the past so this has been a great addition for them. I see students for all basic medical needs, keep health records up to date and communicate with parents as needed. Every day is something new.”
