Southeastern grad student wins counseling association scholarship
A Southeastern graduate student has been awarded the Louisiana School Counselor Association’s Graduate Student Scholarship.
Erica Kelly of Ponchatoula was selected for the scholarship from a pool of statewide applications. The award is based on leadership, character and academic excellence in a graduate program.
“Erica’s skills are second to none; she works with her students like someone who has been practicing for several years,” said Mary Ballard, Southeastern professor of counseling who nominated her for the award. “She is effective in working with teachers and administrators, counseling with parents and guardians and has earned the utmost respect from her teachers and peers.”
Kelly received her undergraduate degree in sociology from LSU. She has performed internships at Fontainebleau High School in Mandeville and Loranger High School. She expects to receive her master’s degree at Southeastern’s spring commencement.
As a recipient of the award, she also serves on the LSCA Executive Board. The LSCA is the state affiliate of the American School Counselor Association and the largest division of the Louisiana Counseling Association.
