I don’t know about you, but 2016 was a challenging, fun and overall – great year for me. I had to miss ASCA 2016, but had my son Joel which is a good excuse! The School Counselor Community Scholarship continues to grow each year – we are looking forward to awarding the funds to the applicants in the coming months.
