Kara Hahn: 2023 Nebraska School Counselor of the Year
You may remember that in the fall, Mrs. Hahn was named the Elementary School Counselor of the year for the Nebraska School Counselor Association (NSCA). Along with a plaque and a $200 stipend, this award allowed her to be entered as a candidate for the 2023 overall Nebraska School counselor of the year. At a celebration in Lincoln, Nebraska, last night, Thursday, February 23, 2023, Mrs. Hahn was selected as the 2023 Nebraska School Counselor of The Year.
To say we are elated for Mrs. Hahn is a complete understatement.
Dr. Rhodes describes Mrs. Hahn as an invaluable North Platte Public Schools team member. "Mrs. Hahn exemplifies character with a student-centered approach to educational principals." Rhodes added, "Mrs. Hahn shares a caring attitude with everyone she interacts with. She is never afraid to step in and assist when others are in need."
Mrs. Hahn will serve as the Nebraska School Counselor of the Year until February 2024. Additionally, she will visit Washington, D.C., next February to represent Nebraska nationally.
