Justin Null, a school counselor at St. Georges for the past 9 years, has been named High School Counselor of the Year for Delaware, and is one of three finalists for the Delaware School Counselor of the Year award. Null joins a middle school counselor from Indian River School District and an elementary school counselor from Red Clay as a semi-finalist. Each received a $500 prize and will compete for the title which will be announced at the Delaware School Counselors Association spring conference.
“I am honored to be named the Delaware High School Counselor of the Year, but I am most proud to accept this award on behalf of my amazing school counseling colleagues at St. Georges, and here in the NCCVT district,” said Null. “Our school counselors work hard behind the scenes each day, serving as the ‘glue’ that helps connect all of the puzzle pieces that make up an entire school community.”
Null, who also serves as Head Boys Soccer Coach and Assistant Girls Soccer Coach at St. Georges, was nominated by his colleagues. He is currently pursuing his second Masters Degree at Wilmington University (in Career and Technical Education). He earned his Masters in School Counseling at Wilmington University, and his Bachelors in Human Services, Education, and Public Policy at the University of Delaware.
