Dothan Brook Counselor Up for Award


Dothan Brook School counselor Rebecca Lallier is in the running for a national award from her peers.

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) recently named Lallier one of five finalists for its 2017 School Counselor of the Year Award. According to the ASCA, the finalists were chosen for their innovations, their leadership and their advocacy.

Earlier this year, the association conferred its Recognized ASCA Model Program award on Dothan Brook School, the second Vermont school and the first elementary institution in the state to earn the honor. The designation cited Lallier, the state’s school counselor of the year, as a key staff member.

Other nominees for the national award are from South Carolina, Georgia, California and Michigan. Lallier and the other finalists will travel to Washington, D.C., with their principals and representatives of their state associations, to be honored at the White House.
