Josh Varner is a husband, father, football coach and the Social and Emotional counsellor at Helias Catholic High School in Jefferson City Missouri.
Like many of us, Josh was blessed to receive encouragement and support at a key time in his life from great teachers and coaches. He learned to give back and after a season as a social worker he now dedicates his life to building relationships of genuine support, challenge and encouragement with every young person he can.
