Flagstaff High School Guidance Counselor Katherine Pastor earned the top nod from the White House.


Nearly 300,000 guidance counselors work at schools across the United States, helping students grow and connecting them with their future.

This year, Flagstaff High School Guidance Counselor Katherine Pastor was singled out as the 2016 Counselor of the Year. Pastor and 42 other school counselors traveled to the White House in January to receive kudos from First Lady Michelle Obama.

“In just seven short years, Flagstaff High School has seen a 13 percent increase in college acceptance rates and a 50 percent increase in the number of colleges that visit their campus,” Obama said about Pastor.

Hear Obama’s full speech in the video below. Congrats, Katherine!
