Greetings from the Iowa ACAC President

As we prepare for another year of college admissions and a new year at our K-12 schools in Iowa, Iowa ACAC continues to work toward serving our members to best support students and families in the college admissions process. As a school counselor and College/Career Transition Counselor, I know how important relationships are to this process - not only with our students - but with all of the professionals who support students along the journey to college. Having just finished with the R.I.D.E., our students in Iowa are incredibly lucky to have a wide range of postsecondary options. We have an institution for every student, whether it be within the state of Iowa or just across the border.

As an organization, we must continue to foster relationships between high schools, community-based organizations, and our institutions of higher education across the state of Iowa and our membership. The last few years have shown that we rely on these relationships to support students. As president, one of my goals is to continue to find ways to connect with and invite school counselors and college admission counselors from all types of institutions to be part of our college admissions community. Programming that we have developed for our new college admission counselors and school counselors over the last few years is crucial to breaking down barriers to educational pathways and supporting professional members.

I look forward to serving Iowa ACAC as president and our board is always looking for new ways to serve our membership. Get involved by filling out our Lend a Hand form. If you have an idea or a need for programming, please contact us at [email protected] and your email will be directed to the appropriate board member/committee chair.

Thank you for being a member of Iowa ACAC.

Sheryl Bass
