Counseling programs win state awards

The Texas School Counselor Association recognized 36 Northside ISD schools with 2022-23 Awards for Counseling Excellence.

They are Beard, Behlau, Boldt, Boone, Cole, Colonies North, Carlos Coon, Glass, Fisher, Hoffmann, Kallison, Leon Valley, Locke Hill, Los Reyes, May, Meadow Village, Mireles, Mora, Passmore, Powell, Wanke, Ward, and Westwood Terrace elementary schools; Connally, Folks, Hector Garcia, Rawlinson, Ross, Straus, and Vale middle schools; and Harlan, Health Careers, Holmes/NSITE, Marshall, O’Connor, and Taft/Communications Arts high schools.

CREST stands for Counselors Reinforcing Excellence for Students in Texas. Schools receiving the CREST award have demonstrated a commitment using the school guidance and counseling program to improve the lives and achievement of students in academic, career, and social domains. 

"The fact that 36 Northside schools across all levels have earned the CREST award from the Texas School Counseling Association (TSCA), is a testament to the incredible work school counselors in Northside continue to do on behalf of students, their campus, and community,” says Mary Libby, Director of Guidance and Counseling. “These recognized campuses highlight the counselor's role in the academic, personal/social, and career development of ALL students."
