The College Board Counselor Recognition Program is a small way to honor the innovative middle and high school counselors who go the extra mile to expand opportunity for students—and who are seeing results.
All nominated counselors will be recognized during National School Counseling Week, February, 2020.
Corrine Caridi, Bethel High School, Bethel, CT
Corrine worked with students who were in free or reduced-price lunch programs to make sure they knew about all the benefits they would get through the SAT fee waiver program—including free college applications. As a result, these students took the SAT and applied to college. Corrine had an immediate, direct impact on their future success.
