It's a great time to be a School Counselor!

"School counseling should not be an extra or a luxury just for school systems that can afford it. School counseling is a necessity to ensure that all our young people get the education they need to succeed in today’s economy." -First Lady Michelle Obama

Mrs. Obama spoke to school counselors in Orlando, FL during the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) conference. She applauded our hard work and asked for our help through her Reach Higher initiative. This initiative strives to help students complete their education through training programs, community college, or a 4-year college or university.
