Joel Lemus-Leon, MS

Joel Lemus-Leon, M.S., is currently enjoying his second year as high school counselor in Crete, Nebraska. Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico until his 6th birthday, Joel and his family immigrated to the United States in pursuit of a better quality of life. After moving to California and different towns in Nebraska, the Lemus family finally found their home in a small town in eastern Nebraska where parents still live. With the help of a high school science teacher, he was able to pursue his dream of furthering his education despite the many barriers, including being undocumented. Joel is grateful that he now is in a career where he is able to help others, just as others have done for him.
