Moncks Corner resident wins Citadel scholarship
A Moncks Corner resident attending The Citadel Graduate College has earned a National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) scholarship.
Angela Robinson was recently selected as one of three recipients of the NBCC’s 2013 Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) scholarship. Robinson and the other two recipients will each receive $5,000 to support their counseling education and to recognize their commitment to providing career counseling and guidance.
According to a Citadel press release, the goal of the GCDF scholarship program is to increase the number of counselors providing quality career guidance and facilitation. The GCDF scholarship program contributes to the Foundation’s mission to leverage the power of counseling by strategically focusing resources for positive change.
Robinson is pursuing a master’s degree in secondary school counseling at The Citadel Graduate College. She received her B.A. in English from the University of South Carolina and her M.S. in English from the State University of New York at New Paltz. As a teacher, she obtained the GCDF credential in 2007 in order to provide meaningful assistance to students in preparation for life after high school.
