Rep. David S. Olsen Named Legislator of the Year by Illinois School Counselor Association

In recognition of his advocacy for school counselors across the state, Representative David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) has been named Legislator of the Year by the Illinois School Counselor Association (ISCA).

“It’s an honor to receive this award for my support of school counselors,” said Olsen. “My personal experiences with the counseling staff at Downers Grove South (DGS) High School were extremely positive. They helped put me on the path that led me to the General Assembly by always encouraging me to set high goals and to dream big.”

Olsen received the award at the Illinois School Counselor Association’s annual meeting in Springfield on Friday, April 13. Presenting the award was Vince Walsh-Rock, President of the Illinois School Counselor Association, who also serves as the Assistant Principal for Student Support Services at DGS.

“Representative Olsen has been a great support to Illinois school counselors this year,” said Walsh-Rock. “He championed a resolution recognizing National School Counseling Week and co-sponsored a bill protecting the title "school counselor". We are proud to recognize Rep. Olsen as ISCA Legislator of the Year.”
