Summary: Sheila Welsh is requesting permission to attend the National Association of College Admission Counselors (NACAC) 69th National Conference in Toronto, Ontario. This is the first time the conference will be an international event. Attendance at past conferences has allowed Sheila Welsh, College & Career Advisor at College Park High School unrivalled professional development opportunities. Networking at past conferences has provided wonderful opportunities for her students. After her first conference, she returned determined to work more closely with the ELD population and began collaboration with the teacher which is ongoing. This fall she came back from Denver fired up about the Gates Millennium Scholarship and began working closely with two students. When she went to New Orleans, she was able to plead a student’s case with admissions officers from Howard University. Networking at the conferences has provided professional contacts outside of the United States. College Park actually has a representative from an English university who is coming out to meet a student and her parents. At each NACAC Conference she have attended, she has come away with invaluable information and contacts to help students achieve their dreams. NACAC’s 69th National Conference will be held September 19-21, 2013 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
