SALT LAKE CITY – Gov. Gary R. Herbert declared Feb. 2-6, 2015, School Counseling Week in Utah. Utah joins the national observation to focus attention to school counselors’ vital role in helping students succeed academically and plan for a career.
“Supporting school counselors is part of the investment we make to provide an educational system where the rising generation can realize its potential,” Gov. Herbert said. “School counselors work in partnership with administrators, teachers and parents to address any challenges students may experience and focus on positive ways to enhance students’ personal, educational and career development and success.”
The declaration in Utah is sponsored by the Utah School Counselors Association. The association believes that guidance and counseling must be an integral part of every student’s education experience. For more information contact USCA Board Member Hali Nielsen at 435-660-1247.
