MOUNT VERNON — The week of Feb. 6-10 has been designated as National School Counseling Week, and celebrates school counselors who help students achieve success, plan for a career and experience personal/social growth.

“School counselors are actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents,” said Knox County Career Center Principal John Feltman. “They partner with parents, teachers and other educators so students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program.”
