The mission of the Rhode Island School Counselor Association is to promote excellence in the profession of school counseling along with the development of all students.

A HUGE shout out to school counselors Cindy Lancaster and Kerry Carlson from McCourt Middle School in Cumberland, the latest recipients of the Golden Apple Award!

Recognized for building the bridge from school to home and for spending hours each day connecting with middle schoolers, the two counselors received their award alongside students, family and colleagues during a surprise Zoom meet-up!

Cindy and Kerry understand that success is beyond academics. Their emotional support, accessibility, and tips for staying engaged was invaluable to students as they navigated the challenges of COVID and remote learning!

We are proud of Cindy and Kerry and we are excited to see school counselors recognized for making a difference!
