Hello NW Region. My name is Connie Thompson and I am a School Counselor at East Burke High School in Burke County. I have recently been appointed by the executive counsel to serve as the NW Region VP this year. I know there will be no way I can fill Christina's shoes, but I will give it my best!! I have been a school counselor for 10 years all of which were in the elementary setting until last year. In January, I accepted a position at East Burke High School, so this is all new for me. If any of you fellow High School counselors have any advice, please send it my way lol. 

I just received your email addresses so I will be sending you information and updates about various conferences and events. Please let me know if you need anything at anytime. 

Don't forget it is not too late to sign up for the NCSCA Conference. Please come join us, it is such a wonderful opportunity to have fun and learn about new trends and resources. Also, if you need to renew your membership dues this would be a good time to go ahead and do so. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week and I look forward to meeting many of you in November!!

Thank you
