KSCA Fall 2015 News Letter
A message from our current KSCA President, Dr. Mary Fry

KSCA 2015-2016

    I believe school counselors are the ALL STARS in every school! As a
    counselor educator, I get excited with every group of graduate
    students who aspire to be school counselors. This year I assume the
    role of KSCA President and I am honored to be associated with a
    dedicated Board.  We will continue to focus on three distinct areas.

    Membership:  KSCA is the state professional organization dedicated
    solely to school counseling.   As the largest division of KCA, KSCA
    provides many benefits to members across the state.  These include
    professional growth opportunities, resources, networking, and a strong
    voice for school counseling.  Please consider adding KSCA to your
    professional memberships.   If you are already a member of KCA, you
    can add KSCA for only $35.   Access the online registration through the
    Membership” link at the side panel of this page.  To join ASCA along
    with KSCA, go to ASCA’s website “schoolcounselor.org”.  

Communication:  KSCA provides a quarterly newsletter through a partnership with ASCA.  The
newsletter includes articles written by KSCA Board members as well as professionals across the
United States.  In addition to the newsletter, regular updates are sent to KSCA members
regarding legislative updates, professional development opportunities and other key issues for
school counselors.

Advocacy:  KSCA has a lobbyist, Bernie Koch, who keeps us informed on legislative activity
throughout the year.  The Government Relations committee sends these lobby reports to
members throughout the Legislative session.  

There are exciting opportunities for KSCA this year!  I would like to urge all Kansas school
counselors to join KSCA and receive the added benefits of professional development, relevant
quarterly newsletters, and regular legislative updates.  If you are interested in serving on a
KSCA committee, please let me know (
mlfry@mnu.edu).  We need everyone’s involvement to
meet our goals.  I hope to see you at Fall Conference in November, KCA conference in March
and the K-State/KSDE Summer Camp next June.
