Rep. Olsen Presents Proclamation for School Counselors Week at Downers Grove South High School

State Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) visited his alma matter Downers Grove South (DGS) High School on February 5 and presented the school’s counselors with a copy of Governor Bruce Rauner’s proclamation designating February 5-9 as School Counselors Week in Illinois.

As he shared the proclamation, Olsen, a 2007 graduate of DGS, reflected on how his personal experiences with the high school counselors positively impacted his own future career path. “My personal experiences with the school counselors at Downers Grove South were very positive, especially with my counselor Mrs. Blei,” said Olsen. “I was always encouraged to set high goals for myself and to dream big.”

Assistant Principal for Student Support Services Vince Walsh-Rock, who also serves as the President of the Illinois School Counselor Association, attended the proclamation presentation, and said he appreciated the recognition. “It’s wonderful that our state leaders took the time to recognize the importance and impact that counselors make each and every day,” he said.

The text of the proclamation is posted on the DGS web site, and can be found here.
