Jolie Daigle and Anneliese Singh, professors in the department of counseling and human development services in the College of Education, recently received 2019 Fellows Awards from the American Counseling Association for their contributions to the counseling profession.
The association’s highest honor, the ACA Fellows Award was presented to Daigle and Singh during the ACA 2019 Conference and Expo in New Orleans in March.
Singh’s research, practice and advocacy are focused on the resilience of transgender people, trans people of color, nonbinary youth, survivors of trauma, immigrants, social justice and empowerment training.
Daigle, a professor-in-residence at Rutland Academy, researches service-learning in counseling training programs, clinical preparation of school counselors, social and emotional development of children and dropout prevention. In 2016, she was elected as an editorial review board member of ACA’s Journal of Counseling and Development.
This year, eight counselors were granted ACA Fellow status. All honorees are active members of the association and represent a diverse community of leaders that create and expand knowledge and insight into the counseling profession.
