Counselors That Care


During each season (Fall/Winter/Spring), two guidance counselors will be recognized for the positive impact they have made on the experience of student-athletes.

Each guidance counselor will be chosen based on how they have supported your college or career decision-making process and how they have guided you through challenges.

Your counselors be selected based on nominations from you, the student-athletes. If you believe your guidance counselor should be recognized, please use the form below to tell us why.
