President's Message: Welcome Kindle Lewis! MSCA's new Executive Director

I am incredibly honored that the board of MSCA has recently hired me to be the first Executive Director of the association and am excited to get to work amplifying the voice of school counselors in Montana!

For the past three years, I have served on the MSC board and I can say with certainty that I have never worked with a group of more dedicated and passionate individuals and have come to realize that these are characteristics of every school counselor I’ve met in our state.

I have been working in youth development for the past ten years in K-12 settings, community organizations, governmental agencies and higher education. I earned my Masters degree in school counseling from the University of Montana and am currently finishing my doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision from UM with dissertation research on factors that influence professional quality of life of school counselors. These experiences and education have taught me that in order for our young people to thrive, those who are critical in their development need to be supported. This is what I aim to do as the MSCA Executive Director; ensure that school counselors across our state are provided opportunities for growth, resources to succeed, and advocacy to advance the profession.

This summer, the Board and myself will be developing our plan for the association under the new Policy Governance model and I would love to hear your ideas for how MSCA can best support you. Please don’t hesitate to email me with thoughts, stories, or concerns at klewismsca@gmail.com

Thank you for all you do for our students and communities!
