Dear Mississippi School Counselors,

I am looking forward to the Mississippi Counseling Association Fall Conference at the Bancorp South Center in Tupelo next week November 8-10, 2017! 

This year there is a change in time for the Mississippi School Counseling Association (MSCA) business meeting.  The meeting will be held from 7:45 to 8:45 on Thursday morning November 8th in room 5.  Unfortunately this will not be a breakfast meeting.  The MSCA business meeting is scheduled at the same time as the First Timer's Breakfast and the MASERVIC business meeting. So, if you are not able to attend the MSCA meeting please find someone to update you on what we cover in the meeting. 

ASCA Announced the 2018 School Counselor of the Year Finalists.  I am very excited and proud that one of our Mississippi school counselors is a finalist!!  Congratulations Crystal Brewer!!  Your hard work and dedication has paid off!

I look forward to seeing you in Tupelo!
