Degrees and Certifications:

Ray Bennett, LMSW

This is my second year at Free State High School and my first year as a school social worker. I received my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare and have experience in family therapy, crisis intervention, and with transition age youth. 

Outside of working at Free State High School, I enjoy art, hiking, and music. 


I am available during school hours (8:00 AM - 3:00 PM), but crises can happen at any time.
