Each year WPRCA is proud to announce our annual Charlotte Pavone Memorial Scholarship for graduate students! Many of us in the School Counseling profession regarded Charlotte as an outstanding counselor, colleague, mentor and dear friend. As an active WPRCA member, she served on the Executive Board and began a mentoring program for new counselors and graduate students. Charlotte was well aware of the financial needs of our graduates. It was because of her interest and involvement that it was very appropriate that we named this award to honor her memory!
WPRCA is sponsoring TWO $600 scholarships for up to two WPRCA members who are current graduate students enrolled in a counseling program. This scholarship assists graduate students pursuing degree programs leading to certification as school counselors.
