Last week was the big Wisconsin School Counselor Association Conference here in Madison. I was lucky to not only be an exhibitor, but I was able to present on the new look of CareerLocker, coming out this fall. Thank you to all of you who stopped by my booth to say hello! I had a couple of counselors ask for my picture…
Please forgive the blurriness; we were having too much fun jumping at the thought of counseling students!
On another note, thanks to all of you who not only attended my session, but took the time to tweet about it! Thanks to Juan Ramirez and his staff at Menomonie High School for the wonderful tweet about attending my session.
Not only was I able to showcase our new look for fall, I was also able to talk about the upcoming ACP requirements and how CareerLocker can meet those requirements. I have decided to attach the document that I made for this session.
This document will be helpful when asking if CareerLocker will meet the upcoming ACP requirements.

Lastly, I was so happy that I chose to sponsor Minnijean Brown Trickey during the President’s lunch Keynote Speech Thursday afternoon. For those of you who were not able to attend, Minnijean was part of the ‘Little Rock Nine,’ a group of nine students who, back in 1957, faced a mob angry for the recent changes of desegregation laws. This event led to interventions of President Eisenhower, along with federal soldiers coming to ensure the safety and entrance of these nine brave students.
Minnijean showed a heart-breaking segment of the film Journey to Little Rock: The Untold Story of Minnijean Brown Trickey. I cannot seem to find this film for viewing on the internet, but I highly recommend it.
And she was kind enough to allow me to pose with her:

Thanks to all who remember me and take the time to visit me at WSCA, or to send me notes and telephone calls during the school year. I hope to see you all throughout the upcoming year! Stay warm Wisconsin!
