This has been a big couple of big weeks for school counselors. First, the National School Counselor of the Year Awards ceremony was, for the first time, hosted by the First Lady at the White House. Then, ASCA followed up with a black tie banquet at the very beautiful Union Station. This week, we celebrate school counseling as part of National School Counseling Week!
Throughout, school counselors, counselor educators, and others were all impacted by both the awesomeness of the events but even more importantly, the remarkable progress made by the profession, especially in the last 15 years. Of course, we are just getting started and have a long way to go in many areas, but these are milestones that truly should be celebrated.
