Congratulations to the 2019 School Counselor of the Year, Brian Coleman, and all of the #SCOY19 state finalists!

I love school counselors. They play such a crucial role—they truly have the power to make a difference in the lives of students everywhere, and that’s why I’m so thankful that so many of them are taking part in the Reach Higher story.

To all of you out there, thank you for opening doors and helping our students prepare for their education and for life beyond the classroom. Thank you for encouraging young people to dream bigger and see their true promise. For everything you do every day—we are so grateful.

Reach Higher

School counselors are the reason our young people are able to #ReachHigher and be the best they can be. Thank you for all you do –– we're behind you every step of the way! #SCOY19
