Congratulations to Jennifer Sack!
Oklahoma School Counselor of the Year
Jennifer Sack is the 2023-2024 Oklahoma School Counselor of the Year. She is the lead counselor at Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa Public Schools where she has spent the entirety of her eleven year school counseling career.
Jennifer has led many initiatives during her time as a school counselor. Some of the most impressive achievements include collaborating with the American School Counseling Association to advocate for legislative change on SB-615 which resulted in revised language to align with ASCA ethical guidelines.
Jennifer also spearheaded College Application Week (CAW) in October of 2022 where she and her fellow counselors were able to increase the number of students applying to college by 22% in just five days!
Finally, Jennifer oversees a Student Safe Team. During the 2020-2021 school year she was able to advise this team of students as they gathered data and advocated for more comprehensive mental health services on their campus. Their hard work and advocacy resulted in the addition of a Social Services Specialist at Booker T. Washington High School.
One of Jennifer’s co-counselors describes her as a counselor who cares about each and every student in her building. She states Jennifer, “advises and supports students in every situation, from the high achieving student aiming for the Ivy League, to the struggling student who is on the brink of dropping out”.
The Oklahoma School Counselor Association is immensely proud of Mrs. Sack. We cannot imagine a better representative for our state and wish her the best of luck as she competes for American School Counselor of the Year.
