Counseling Professor Serves on Advisory Board

    February 27, 2019

    Kevin Wilkerson, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Services, served on the advisory board for the past two years for a local school counseling program that has received certification as a Recognized-ASCA-Model-Program.

    This designation, awarded by the American School Counselor Association, is the highest level of acknowledgment that a school counseling program can receive. The school, R.D. Wilson, is part of the Western Wayne School District and will join just six other schools in Pennsylvania that have been honored with this national recognition. The program will be formally recognized at the RAMP awards banquet during the ASCA annual conference in Boston this summer. The certification is awarded to the school counseling program, bearing in mind that a successful program could never exist without the dozens of supporters, believers, collaborators, and advocators.

    Last year, Dr. Wilkerson received the Excellence in Graduate Teaching Faculty Senate Award, which recognizes a faculty member who demonstrates dedication to teaching graduate students in a manner that creates an encouraging and intellectually stimulating environment that promotes critical thinking and learning. A member of Scranton’s faculty since 2004, Dr. Wilkerson earned his bachelor’s degree from Colgate University, his master’s degree from the University of Vermont and his Ph.D. from Syracuse University.
