National School Counseling Week runs from Feb. 6-10, and to kick things off, Secretary Duncan spoke at the American School Counselor Association’s annual gala last Friday. Duncan thanked school counselors for their hard work, and praised them for the difference they make in the lives of America’s students.
Secretary Duncan also met with and congratulated School Counselor of the Year Nicole Pfleger and five other finalists. “I know how good counselors are,” Duncan said to the group. “And for you to be the best of the best is really amazing.”
Duncan followed up his speech by issuing a statement earlier today recognizing National School Counseling Week.
I want to salute the thousands of professionals across the country engaged in school counseling. Every day, these unsung heroes in American education help millions of students sidestep the roadblocks of life. They help them succeed, achieve their dreams, reach their potential, explore their curiosity and more.
