Welcome Back!!!

We are so excited to begin a new school year with all the AMAZING school counselors of Lee County!

The LCSCA board members have been hard at work planning events for this upcoming year. We are excited to be partnering with other community organizations later this year. We will also have various fundraisers this year for our scholarship fund and general fund so that we can provide more professional development opportunities and networking events.

If you are interested in being part of the LCSCA leadership team, please e-mail Nestor Avila nestora@leeschools.net our President.

We are launching our website and in the near future we will have resources that will be available through a special login that will be provided once membership dues have been paid.

#ReachHigher

During the ASCA National Conference, school counselors from around the United States had the opportunity to hear @FLOTUS First Lady Michelle Obama speak. During her speech, we were able to learn more about the White House's new initiative call Reach Higher. We are excited to see what happens as this initiative is implemented!
