Information on National College Fairs

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), founded in 1937, is an organization of 8,000 professionals from around the world dedicated to serving students as they make choices about pursuing postsecondary education.  NACAC effectively brings together primary and secondary school counselors, independent counselors, college admission and financial aid officers, enrollment managers, and organizations engaged in guiding students through the secondary to higher education transition process.  Each year NACAC sponsors several college fairs around the country, including one in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the spring. 

Education World for Counselors

In the spring of 1996, the founders of Education World recognized the need for a Web site that would make the Internet easier for educators to use. They wanted to create a home for educators on the Internet, a place where those in school settings could gather and share ideas. They wanted to create a complete online resource where educators could start each day to find the lesson plans and research materials they were looking for.

The result is Education World, the Educator's Best Friend!  This link takes you to the section of the site designed to serve the needs of professional school counselors.  It is a great resource available free to us (with lots of advertisement banners) as we serve our students.

Building Career Awareness K – 8

On the right hand side under hot topics you will see 3 links to our Elementary Career Resource Kit.  This is a new resource we have completed and posted.  We did provide information last year at a KCDC (Kent Career Development Council) meeting, but haven’t gotten it into the hands of Elementary Schools.

The Bullycide Project

The Bullycide Project is based on the book Bullycide in America, complied by Brenda High and written by mothers who have lost a child to suicide due to excessive bullying. I was introduced to this book by Kevin and Tammy Epling about three years ago. As I read it, I immediately felt that this would be an effective and thought-provoking performance piece that would help create further awareness of the term bullycide.
