Guidance Counselors to Learn More about Benefits of Community College Experience at TNCC


Published: February 1, 2007

Middle and high school guidance counselors from across the Peninsula have been invited to attend a mini-conference sponsored by Thomas Nelson Community College on February 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center. At the conference, participants will obtain the most current information concerning the College’s academic programs and support services and explore how students can benefit from the community college experience. Counselors will also collaborate and network with other colleagues and college staff to share ideas for expanding student options through academic programs and student support services.

Highlights of the Guidance Counselor Mini-Conference include: campus tours, break-out sessions with the deans of the four academic divisions at Thomas Nelson Community College, a panel discussion on admissions, testing, counseling, financial aid and registration, and an information session on dual enrollment and tech prep opportunities for high school students.

“Counselors play a key role in advising students about higher education. The information they will get at this mini-conference will prove valuable for the counselors and the hundreds of students they advise during the academic year,” said Dr. Crystal Taylor, Director of Outreach and Recruitment at Thomas Nelson Community College. “Thomas Nelson has helped thousands of students achieve their educational goals. We want to ensure each middle school and high school student is aware of the opportunities they can find at this institution.”

This mini-conference is being held during National School Counseling Week which is celebrated the first full week of February to highlight the tremendous impact that counselors have in helping students achieve academic success and plan for a career.
