Kansas School Counselor Association

KSCA Fall 2015 News Letter
A message from our current KSCA President, Dr. Mary Fry

KSCA 2015-2016

I believe school counselors are the ALL STARS in every
school! As a counselor educator, I get excited with every
group of graduate students who aspire to be school
counselors. This year I assume the role of KSCA President
and I am honored to be associated with a dedicated Board.  
We will continue to focus on three distinct areas.

Membership:  KSCA is the state professional organization
dedicated solely to school counseling.   As the largest
division of KCA, KSCA provides many benefits to members
across the state.  These include professional growth
opportunities, resources, networking, and a strong voice
for school counseling.  Please consider adding KSCA to
your professional memberships.   If you are already a
member of KCA, you can add KSCA for only $35.   Access
the online registration through the “
Membership” link at
the side panel of this page.  To join ASCA along with KSCA,
go to ASCA’s website “

Communication:  KSCA provides a quarterly newsletter
through a partnership with ASCA.  The newsletter includes
articles written by KSCA Board members as well as
professionals across the United States.  In addition to the
newsletter, regular updates are sent to KSCA members
regarding legislative updates, professional development
opportunities and other key issues for school counselors.

Advocacy:  KSCA has a lobbyist, Bernie Koch, who keeps
us informed on legislative activity throughout the year.  
The Government Relations committee sends these lobby
reports to members throughout the Legislative session.  

There are exciting opportunities for KSCA this year!  I
would like to urge all Kansas school counselors to join
KSCA and receive the added benefits of professional
development, relevant quarterly newsletters, and regular
legislative updates.  If you are interested in serving on a
KSCA committee, please let me know (
mlfry@mnu.edu).  We
need everyone’s involvement to meet our goals.  I hope to
see you at Fall Conference in November, KCA conference
in March and the K-State/KSDE Summer Camp next June.
