Mortensen named Minnesota School Counselor of the Year

Oak Grove Middle School counselor Sandra Mortensen has been named 2019 Minnesota School Counselor of the Year by the Minnesota School Counselors Association (MSCA).

Mortensen was recognized at the MSCA annual conference in St. Paul. She will join award winners from all 50 states at the National School Counselor of the Year Celebration in January in Washington, DC, where she is eligible to receive the national award.

The statewide award is given each year to a school counselor who demonstrates leadership, advocacy and collaboration in their work and promotes equity, access to opportunities and rigorous education experiences for all students.  

“I love building relationships and supporting students as they work toward their academic, social and career goals,” said Mortensen. “The teachers at Oak Grove Middle School are great partners, and it’s a joy to collaborate with them in support of our students.”
