Recently, the New York State School Counselor’s Association selected Northport High School counselor Jenny Konop as the 2018 New York School Counselor of the Year representative for the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) School Counselor of Year awards. Konop was selected based on her excellence in counseling innovations, effective counseling programs, leadership and advocacy skills, and contributions to student advancement.

“One of our core beliefs at Northport is that students come first,” said high school Principal Daniel Danbusky, “and I can think of no better example than Jenny Konop, who is always putting students first.”

According to many different staff members and students, Konop excels in knowing what her students need, and provides an incredible amount of support to help them get to where they need to be.

“From day one, I knew she was someone I could connect with,” said Northport High School student Brielle. “She’s always there.”

Konop will travel to Washington, D.C. from Feb. 1–3 to be honored in a ceremony along with the national School Counselor of the Year and state finalists.
