Congratulations to our Newly Elected Governing Board Members

       Stacy Athow                                    Don Ferree                               Julie Schiltmeyer       
Omaha, NE - The Nebraska School Counselor Association is pleased to announce Stacy Athow, Don Ferree, and Julie Schiltmeyer have been elected to join the NSCA Governing Board.  Each of them was elected by the membership to a three-year term that will begin on July 1, 2020.  Stacy Athow will be the Dean of Students at Ralston High School for the 2020-21 school year after serving as the Director of School Counseling since 2008 at the same school.  Don Ferree and Julie Schiltmeyer are school counselors at Burke High School in Omaha and Pope John Central Catholic XXII High School in Elgin, respectively.   These three individuals bring a wide range of experiences as school counselors as each has worked in vastly different settings.  They also have experiences as coaches, activity directors, school counselor supervisors, and building administrators. 

As we welcome these outstanding new board members, NSCA also recognizes three outstanding school counseling leaders that will be coming off the board on July 1st.  Laurie Fitzpatrick, Josie McDonnell, and Josette Taylor have all played a significant role in the restructuring of the NSCA Governing Board as they have adopted the Policy Governance Model.  Josette also served as the NSCA Board Chair for the 2018-19 school year.  Thank you to these retiring board members and congratulations to our new board members.
