Dover, DE — The NBCC Foundation, an affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc. (NBCC), recently awarded one of the 2015 NBCC Foundation Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) scholarships to Kendall Wilson, of Dover, Delaware. The goal of the GCDF scholarship program is to increase the number of available counselors providing quality career guidance and facilitation. In doing so, the GCDF scholarship program plays an important role in the Foundation’s mission to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change. Wilson will receive $5,000 to support her counseling education and recognize her commitment to providing career counseling and guidance.
A graduate of Wesley College, in Dover, Wilson is currently working toward her master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Wilmington University, in Dover. Upon completing her degree, Wilson intends to work with college students, assisting them in identifying fulfilling career choices. She would also like to work with diverse, underrepresented populations in either mental health or career counseling services. The GCDF scholarship will allow Wilson to complete her education and attend further conferences to assist in establishing her professional presence in the community, connect with local resources, and identify areas for advocacy for underrepresented populations.” (www.nbccf.org).
