Guidance Counselor Mrs. Kelly Fink Receives National Recognition!

Lutheran Northwest is very proud to announce that Mrs. Fink, our amazing guidance counselor, has received a very prestigious award from ACT. Mrs. Fink has been awarded the “2018 ACT College and Career Readiness Champion.” ACT only gives this award out to one K-12 educator from each state. That means nationwide, there were only fifty K-12 educators who won this award, and Mrs. Fink was one of them! Here is a brief description of the award from ACT:

“The ACT College and Career Readiness Champions are individuals across the country who support ACT’s mission of education and workplace success. They are high school seniors, K-12, postsecondary, and workforce professionals, who have demonstrated exemplary behavior and contributions in support of college and career readiness in their respective communities.”

We give thanks to God for blessing Lutheran Northwest with Mrs. Fink as she works tirelessly with our students!
