Counseling programs win state awards

The Texas School Counselor Association recognized Adams Hill, Colonies North, Locke Hill, Meadow Village, Mireles, and Wanke elementary schools; Connally, Hector Garcia, Rudder, and Stinson middle schools; and Brandeis, Brennan, Harlan, and O’Connor high schools with 2020-2021 CREST Awards for Counseling Excellence.

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 14 Northside schools across three levels have earned the CREST award from the Texas School Counselor 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." 

This is the third time the programs at Brandeis, Connally, and Stinson have been recognized and they will receive a special status next year.
