NBC Grads Serve in Many Forms of Ministry
Recently, Liz Wiggins was a 2010 graduate of NBC's Christian Counseling program. Following graduation from NBC, she was accepted into a Master's program at Adams State University in Alamosa, CO. Her life since college is an indicator of the quality of education and preparation that NBC grads receive. Recently, Liz sent an update of her latest activities. With her permission we are sharing some of her report.
"Life in my world is exciting! My career as a school counselor continues to bring me so much joy. I am in my second full-time year at Mountain Vista Community School (a K-8 school). My work is so exciting I find myself looking forward to coming to work every day. My principal and assistant principal really respect my work as a counselor. I love interacting with students, many of whom come from very rough situations: poverty, incarcerated parents, broken homes, immigrant families, etc. I truly feel I make a difference every day."
"Additionally, I have been asked to lead staff development on communication skills, conflict resolutions, and team building. It is an amazing mix of student counseling and staff counseling. I am also serving as a mentor for the Colorado School Counselors Association for 2 new counselors in the state. On the other side of things, I will finish my hours for my LPC license this summer."
"Somehow, I decided I am not quite done learning and growing academically. I found out yesterday that I was accepted into Adams State University's doctorate program. I start this summer on a 4 year journey that will end with my PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision."
