Armstrong Middle honored with 2010 RAMP Award
Armstrong Middle School received the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation during a special ceremony at the American School Counselor Association’s annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
Armstrong Middle School, as well as 85 other schools from 22 states that reach across the K-12 spectrum, was honored for making an exemplary commitment to comprehensive school counseling programs.
The RAMP designation, awarded to schools that align with the criteria set in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. More than 300 schools have received the RAMP designation since the program’s inception.
Dr. Patricia Nailor, ASCA’s 2009-10 president, said this year’s recipients are to be commended for their dedication to serving all students and demonstrating how effective school counseling programs can make a difference in students’ lives.
“This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Nailor. “This designation distinguishes these schools and encourages school counselors nationwide to continue to strive for success.”
On hand during the conference accepting the award was Dr. Jacquelin Broussard, Armstrong counselor, who was presented the award by Brenda Eccles, President-Louisiana School Counseling Association, and Dr. Patricia Nailor, President-American School Counselor Association.
