Counseling programs win state awards

The Texas School Counselor Association recognized Boone, Colonies North, May, Mireles, Mora, Wanke, and Ward elementary schools; Hector Garcia, Rudder, and Stinson middle schools; the Irene Chavez Excel Academy; and Brandeis, Brennan, Health Careers, and O'Connor high schools with 2021-2022 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 15 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."
