Sampson County Schools recognized counselors for their contributions in education.

The National School Counseling Week sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), was celebrated the week of Feb. 5 through 9. The purpose was to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within United States school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.

National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who “implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st Century.”
