• Counselor of the Year Recognition

    Forsyth County has many outstanding school counselors.  Once a year we have the opportunity to give special recognition to a counselor or counselors as Counselor of the Year.  Nominees must demonstrate attributes and qualities of supporting students in the areas of career, personal/social and academic development of students, leadership, advocacy, collaboration, service to school and community and the highest levels of professional and personal ethical standards.  Administrators, school staff, parents and fellow counselors can nominate a counselor for this recognition by sending a letter of nomination to Debbie Smith (dsmith@forsyth.k12.ga.us), Student Support Services, Forsyth County Schools. The nominated counselor must currently be employed full-time, must have been employed in Forsyth County as a school counselor for at least three years and must have served as a school counselor for at least five years.  Thank you for your support.
