Award honorees

Lee-Davis High School (L-DHS) has been named a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). L-DHS is the first high school in the region, and one of only 59 schools in the state, to receive this honor. 

The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering an exemplary comprehensive school counseling program and encourages school counselors nationwide to strive for excellence. Honorees are awarded for aligning their program with criteria outlined in the ASCA national model, a framework for a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling so all students can achieve success.

L-DHS School Counseling Director Karen Cole said, “The central goal of the Lee-Davis High School counseling team for the past four years has been to best serve our students by aligning our program with ASCA model standards. Through building positive relationships and utilizing student-driven data, we have worked to provide a program that addresses the academic, career, and social/emotional development of every student. We are humbled and elated to receive this recognition.”

Charles Stevens, L-DHS principal, said, “All the credit goes to our school counseling team for their dedicated efforts in collecting data and implementing the appropriate strategies to enhance the educational experiences of our students. I also want to commend Mrs. Cole for her leadership in pursuing RAMP. We could not be prouder!”

Karla Allen, coordinator of counseling services, praised the effort. “I am so proud of our school counseling team for all of the time and energy they invested into achieving this status, as well as implementing a comprehensive counseling program to provide equitable and relevant learning experiences for our students.”

ASCA will honor L-DHS at a recognition ceremony at their annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts in July for making an exemplary commitment to comprehensive school counseling programs.
