Trinity College Guidance Counselor Receives National Recognition

Trinity College Guidance Counselor Receives National Recognition

Even before Allie Kerns began working as a College Guidance Counselor at Trinity, she knew that one thing made Trinity such a special place to be: The people. “I was drawn to Trinity because of people like Jeremy Jackson and Sharon Bohannon. They were incredibly welcoming from the very first moment I met them, and I wanted to be in an environment where people are more than just colleagues.” Now that she’s at Trinity, she’s having the time of her life doing something that she’s incredibly passionate about. “College Counseling is such an important piece of the high school puzzle. Our students are able to receive feedback on not only applications and essays, but also college majors and financial aid. With our help, we feel as if our students are able to be good advocates for themselves.”

Kerns is one of two College Guidance Counselors at Trinity, and she believes that the students benefit greatly. “We’re incredibly fortunate at Trinity to have two full-time college counselors. Our guys always have easy access to one of us.” With Trinity’s Class of 2019 setting a new school record in the amount of merit scholarship offers they received ($44 million), on top of being accepted to nearly 150 colleges and universities, the numbers speak for themselves!

These results did not go unnoticed. Recently, Kerns was selected as a Member Spotlight feature for the National Association for College Admissions Counseling.

“I’m so grateful for a school that supports professional development and my involvement on a state and national level,” Kerns says about the recognition. “It’s an honor to be featured, and it makes me even more excited to continue finding new ways to connect to our students with post-secondary educational options that will be the best fit.”

“The future at Trinity is bright. We’ve got some new college visit options in the works for the next school year and I cannot wait to see how it turns out!”

Keep up the good work, Allie. Trinity is proud of you!
